Court rejects Nanda’s plea
The Delhi High Court rejected the request of Sanjeev Nanda who expressed his wish to celebrate his birthday on January 17 with family and friends, reports Harish V Nair.delhi Updated: Jan 09, 2009 23:14 IST
Young businessman Sanjeev Nanda, serving a five-year jail term after his conviction in the BMW-hit-and-run case, expressed his wish to celebrate his birthday on January 17 with family and friends.
But the Delhi High Court on Friday rejected his request and that of his “school friend whom he intends to marry”.
Justice Kailash Gambhir dismissed his application seeking extension of the three-week interim bail granted on December 19 which expires on Friday. It means that Nanda will have to surrender himself on Saturday and will be re-lodged in Tihar Jail. He was given interim bail to meet his ailing grandfather and former Naval Chief S.M. Nanda.
No relief for Bhasin
The Delhi High Court on Friday rejected the bail plea of Utsav Bhasin, teenaged son of a Haryana industrialist, accused of mowing down a man with his BMW car in south Delhi.
Justice Veena Birbal dismissed the plea of the 19-year-old boy taking into account the gravity of the case and his conduct and the fact that the case is at an initial stage. The accident took place on September 11 last year. Bhasin hit two men on a motorcycle around 2.40 a.m. near Moolchand flyover in south Delhi. One of the two victims died later.
