Guwahati, Nov 21: Bondona Kalita, the prime suspect in the infamous Guwahati double murder case, appeared before the District & Sessions Judge Court, Kamrup (M) on Tuesday. Kalita had been previously accused of the gruesome murder of her husband and mother-in-law in Guwahati’s Noonmati.
She was granted bail by the same court on November 10. The Kamrup Metropolitan District and Sessions Judge Court, after hearing case number 91/23, granted bail to Kalita on specific terms and conditions. The case is still pending trial. The court also granted bail to her accomplices, Dhanti Deka and Arup Deka.
