Ravinder Kaur: Bedfordshire dental poisoning suspect bailed

A 33-year-old worker at a dentist's practice in Bedfordshire has appeared in court charged with poisoning two of her colleagues.

Ravinder Kaur, from Bedford, appeared at Luton Crown Court charged with two counts of administering poison with intent to annoy, injure or aggrieve.

The charges relate to two separate alleged incidents in March at the practice in Shefford.

Ms Kaur, of Ettrick Drive, was granted conditional bail.

She will reappear at Luton Crown Court for a plea and case management hearing on 5 November.

Bedfordshire Police said the charges concerned incidents in which two female colleagues suffered stomach upsets, said to have been caused by dental mercury poisoning.

Ms Kaur is currently suspended from work.
