Four months after the Bombay High Court quashed an order of the Foreign Regional Registration Office (FRRO) restraining Nooria Haveliwala — accused in a drink-driving and hit-and-run case in which two persons died — from travelling beyond Mahim,the Colaba resident is back in court to contest another order retraining her from leaving Mumbai.

On October 13,the FRRO and Deputy Commissioner of Police,Special Branch II,CID Aswati Dorje issued a restraining order against Haveliwala on the apprehension that she may leave the city to evade her trial in the special Narcotics Drugs and Pyschotropic Substances (NDPS) court.

Contesting the order,Haveliwala stated in her petition that a similar restriction order issued by the FRRO earlier has been struck down by the court.

On January 30,Haveliwala,an Overseas Citizen of India,allegedly driving her Honda CRV under the influence of alcohol and drugs,mowed down a biker Afzal Ibrahim (35) and police sub-inspector Dinanath Shinde (46),who was on duty at Marine Drive. She was granted bail in March.

Haveliwala’s lawyer Ashwin Thool told the court,“I (Haveliwala) have been attending court day in and day out. My passport is also with the court.”

In the five-page restraining order,Dorje,has,however stated,“… mere regularity in attending the trial court does not inspire confidence that there is no intention to abscond on your (Haveliwala) part,nor does it assume that you would not go underground in the future.”

Justice A M Khanwilkar remarked,“An apprehension is expressed by the department. What is wrong with that?” The case will be heard further on Friday.
