Gorakhpur: Ukrainian model Daria Molcha, who was arrested by the special task force of Uttar Pradesh Police from a private hotel here on April 3 for staying in the country without a valid visa, was released from jail on Friday.
The 20-year-old model walked free after civil judge Surendra Pratap Singh issued her release order on Thursday. "Daria Molcha, who was jailed under various sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) and the Foreigners Act, was released around 1.00 pm. We had received the release order very late yesterday that is why she was released today," jail superintendent Ramdhani said.
Two persons from Kolkata - Chandari Rawat and Adarsh - had come here on a chartered plane and they went to the chief judicial magistrate court for the release of Molcha. Gorakhpur-based businessman Anuj Poddar had also helped her, SP (Crime) Alok Sharma said.
Molcha has been sent to the Ukrainian embassy in Delhi under police protection, Senior Superintendent of Police Shalabh Mathur said. The application of the model's bail was rejected by the district court on April 12. After that, the bail application was filed in the high court which granted her bail about a week ago.
Molcha had crossed the Indian border without any valid travel documents and was arrested by the STF from a private hotel on Park Road here. Police said that she had sneaked into the Indian territory through the porous Nepal border.
She stayed in the Himalayan country with her friend Imran Kashif for 15 days and after that she came to Gorakhpur on a fake driving licence. The STF sleuths had recovered USD 18000, a smart phone and a tablet from her.
