The Punjab and Haryana High Court on Monday granted bail to jailed Mazdoor Adhikar Sangathan member Nodeep Kaur in the second case lodged against her.

Kaur has also filed a petition in the High Court requesting for bail in the third case registered against her. She will remain in jail till the court decides on her request. The third case was filed on charges of attempt to murder.

She, along with others, was arrested on January 12 for allegedly gheraoing an industrial unit and demanding money from the company in Sonipat district, the Haryana police had earlier said.

Kaur has two separate cases of extortion registered against her.

She was granted bail in a case registered on January 12 under various sections of IPC and for extortion. The same court had on Thursday granted her bail in another case registered on December 28 also under IPC sections for extortion and other charges, her counsel said.

On Thursday, Punjab minister Aruna Chaudhary had urged the National Commission for Women to intervene and ensure the release of Nodeep Kaur.

The Punjab State Commission for Scheduled Castes had on February 8 asked an additional chief secretary in the state to intervene in the matter and ensure relief to her at the earliest.
