Doc­tor charged with mu­ti­la­tion wins re­lease

Truro Daily News - - CLASSIFIED­S/WORLD -

DETROIT — A Detroit-area doc­tor charged with per­form­ing gen­i­tal mu­ti­la­tion on girls in a Mus­lim sect will be re­leased from jail as she awaits trial.

A judge on Tues­day was per­suaded to grant bond to Dr. Ju­mana Na­gar­wala af­ter sup­port­ers pledged to pay more than US$4 mil­lion if she flees the coun­try.

Fed­eral Judge Bernard Friedman called it a “very com­pre­hen­sive pack­age.”

Na­gar­wala has been in cus­tody since her ar­rest in April, and it will be a few days more be­fore she’s re­leased. She must wear an elec­tronic tether.
