Vishal Yadav on Friday moved the Delhi High Court challenging his conviction by a lower court in the Nitish Katara murder case.
Vishal and his cousin Vikas were sentenced to life imprisonment in the case.
A Division Bench of Justices B.N. Chaturvedi and P.K. Bhasin sought the trial court records on an appeal filed by Vishal and fixed November 17 for hearing.
Contending that the trial judge had ignored certain facts in the case, Vishal said the court relied upon the deposition of Ajay Katara despite the fact that he was an interested witness in case.
Vishal said the crime-related articles were planted.
