Ranchi, June 27

A Jharkhand court yesterday rejected the bail plea of Sudha Pathak, the mother of Delhi journalist Nirupama Pathak who was found dead in her home on April 29.

Additional District Judge Nitynanad Singh in Koderma town rejected the appeal for bail, her lawyer Arun Mishra said, adding that he would move the high court.

"She has been implicated in her daughter's death," Mishra said.

Sudha was arrested on May 3 on the charges of killing Nirupama. The family insists that Nirupama, who was pregnant at the time, had committed suicide.
