Gail Papli murder accused gets bail

2008-02-26 00:00

A 25-year-old man, Nivesh Doodla of Raisethorpe, who is charged with the murder of masters student Gail Papli, with whom he reportedly had a relationship and who was found stabbed to death in Newholmes earlier this month, was yesterday granted bail of R5 000 by Pietermaritzburg magistrate Paul van Dongen.

The case has been postponed until March 19 for further investigation. The state had opposed the granting of bail to Doodla on grounds that he might abscond, that he suffers from suicidal tendencies and concern that he might interfere with state witnesses. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
