She is charged with one count of Giving False Information to a Public Servant.
Magistrate Nil Min Fernandez told Nisha to file a formal bail application through her Legal Aid lawyer this afternoon.
Police Prosecutor Pramesh Chand objected to bail saying Nisha has reoffended while on bail.

The 25-year-old woman claimed on Facebook that her husband threatened to assault her and that post was widely shared.
She also claimed Police had refused to assist her with the case.
