The Delhi High Court on Friday rejected a plea of BMW-hit-and-run case convict Sanjeev Nanda to extend his interim bail which expires on Saturday. Justice Kailash Gambhir dismissed the petition of Nanda which means he has to surrender himself on Saturday. Nanda, undergoing five years jail term in the BMW hit-and-run case, was earlier on December 19 granted three-week interim bail to meet his ailing grandfather and former Naval Chief S M Nanda.
"In order to help the 1971 war hero to meet his grandson, three weeks interim bail is granted to Nanda," the court had said while granting him interim bail. Nanda, son of arms dealer Suresh Nanda, was sentenced to five-year jail term on September 5 for killing six persons, including three policemen by his BMW car in the wee hours of January 10, 1999 at Lodhi Colony in New Delhi.
