Dolheguy sat indifferently with her head down as she showed up under the watchful eye of the Melbourne Magistrates Court by means of a video connect from custody.
The teen was accused of trying to kill, deliberately causing serious damage and rashly causing genuine damage after her arrest, and furthermore confronted a charge of murder.
Dolheguy and Rathod allegedly met through a dating application and chose to meet each other.
She was remanded to custody to appear of the court again on November 19.
The Indian mission in Melbourne affirmed that the Indian is in consistent touch with his family in India and local friends and in addition applicable Australian specialists.
“Considering the irregular conditions encompassing the tragic death, the Australian specialists would need to do additional legitimate customs previously the mortal remains are discharged, and thus the transportation of the mortal stays of Maulin back to India may take somewhat longer time,” the Indian Consulate here said.
It said that all endeavours were being made by the Consulate, as a team with the Australian experts, to facilitate the culmination of the required conventions, so the mortal stays of Rathod were repatriated at the earliest.
Rathod had gone to Australia four years prior on an student visa to study about accountancy.
