A Mumbai Sessions Court rejected the bail application filed by two accused in the Malvani hooch case.
Leela Patel and Geeta Sayyed, charged with being part of the conspiracy, were denied bail by the court.
Special Public Prosecutor Prakash Kharat had argued that since the case had caused the deaths of 106 persons and there was prima facie involvement of the accused, they should not be granted bail at this stage.
