Hyderabad – Nowhera Shaikh of Heera group mysteriously went missing from the Chanchalguda Women’s cell on Thursday evening where her legal team went to receive her.

45-years-old CEO of Heera Group – Nowhera Shaikh – popularly known as ‘Aapa’ was expected to be released on Thursday after the court granted her conditional bail.

According to her lawyer – Vineeth Dhanda – they had been eagerly waiting to receive her since 4:30pm, but did not find her, while the prison authorities claimed her release.

Speaking to IB 24X7, Dhanda said, “we have spoken to prison people, they said, they have released Dr. Nowhera Shaikh, but she did not come out.”

“I am going to file habeas corpus against the prison authorities”, he added.

He alleged that prison authorities transferred her to another prison.

“Once a person is released on bail, prison transfer cannot take place, and that is contempt of court,” he said.

Mrs. Shaikh was arrested on Tuesday on the charges of allegedly cheating the investors. However, the court granted her conditional bail to return investors’ money.

But her mysterious missing has started making the investors more anxious.
