“We filed for a plea for her documents to be returned in 2014,” Sayyed’s lawyer Rajendra Jawanjal said. “The documents were sought as it the lack of them hindered her daily activities. The police did not file a reply. Hence, this has been pending for two years,” Jawanjal added.

The special MCOCA judge V V Patil however, held that the special judge who convicted Sayyed had ordered the documents sought by her to be preserved as the case against those absconding is still to be resolved.
