Gorakhpur: Ukrainian model Daria Molcha, who was arrested by the special task force from a private hotel in Uttar Pradesh’s Gorakhpur for staying in the country without a valid visa, was released from the district jail on Friday.
The 20-year-old model walked free on Friday 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.
Molcha has been sent to the Ukrainian embassy in Delhi under police protection, Senior Superintendent of Police Shalabh Mathur said.
Two men 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.
The application of the Ukrainian 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.
The Ukrainian model had crossed the Indian border without any valid travel documents and was arrested by the STF from a private hotel on Park Road in Gorakhpur....
