Interim bail granted to Mumbai businessman
The Supreme Court has extended the interim bail granted to Mumbai businessman Nitin Shah who, along with underworld don Babloo Srivastava, had been sentenced to life imprisonment in the 1992 Lalit Suneja murder case.
A bench of Justices AR Lakshmanan and Altmas Kabir, which extended Shah's bail till February 15, also issued a notice to the Delhi Police on his petition challenging a Delhi High Court order refusing to extend his interim bail and asking him to surrender.
A sessions court had on July 3 last year sentenced Shah and Babloo, holding them guilty of entering into a conspiracy to kill Shah's employee Suneja over a business rivalry.
The trial court had said the prosecution had "proved beyond doubt" that Shah had in August 1992 hired two contract killers through Babloo to murder Suneja.
