Vishal Yadav, who along with his cousin Vikas, is serving life term for killing MBA graduate Nitish Katara in 2002, on Friday moved the Supreme Court for bail.

Pleading for bail, Vishal submitted in his petition that he was not keeping well and there was no “direct evidence” against him.

Vishal, son of controversial UP politician DP Yadav, approached the apex court, challenging the Delhi High Court order of February 24, in which his plea for bail plea had been dismissed.

The court had rejected his plea for suspension of his sentence till the court decides on his appeal filed in 2008, after being sentenced to life imprisonment by a lower court.

The trial court had in May 2008 sentenced Vishal and Vikas to life imprisonment for kidnapping Katara on the intervening night of February 16-17, 2002, from a marriage party in Ghaziabad and killed him as they were against their sister Bharti Yadav’s relationship with him.
