Vikas Yadav wants four days leave from jail
New Delhi: The Delhi High Court Wednesday issued notice to Delhi Police on a plea by Vikas Yadav, undergoing life imprisonment for the murder of Nitish Katara in 2002, seeking four days suspension of his sentence for signing some legal papers.
Taking note of the counsel`s submission that Vikas Yadav would sign the documents and return to custody, a division bench of Justices S. Ravindra Bhat and Pratibha Rani issued notice to Delhi Police and sought their reply Nov 22.
His counsel said Vikas Yadav only needed to complete power of attorney formalities granting rights to his brother as the property was in the name of his mother and him.
The court asked, had he not been aware of this property since 2002.
Another bench had earlier allowed Vikas Yadav to leave jail for one day to attend his sister`s wedding.
Vikas Yadav, son of Uttar Pradesh politician D.P. Yadav, was convicted along with his cousin Vishal Yadav for kidnapping and murdering Nitish Katara, a close friend of his sister Bharti.
The duo had kidnapped and killed Katara, son of an IAS officer, on the night of Feb 17, 2002, after abducting him from a marriage party in Ghaziabad as they were opposed to his relationship with Bharti.
