New Delhi: The Supreme Court today dismissed
a plea of Manu Sharma, son of senior Congress leader Venod
Sharma, seeking review of the judgement sentencing him to life
imprisonment for killing model Jessica Lall 11 years ago.

"There is no merit in the plea," a bench comprising
Justices P Sathasivam and Swatanter Kumar said refusing to
interfere with its April 19 verdict in which it had said that
Sharma`s guilt was proved beyond reasonable doubt.

The bench said the review petition is being dismissed on
the same grounds on which the appeal against the Delhi High
Court verdict was rejected.

It also disallowed the review petition of Amardeep Singh
Gill alias Tony Gill, then an MNC executive, who was convicted
and sentenced to four years imprisonment along with Vikas
Yadav, son of controversial Uttar Pradesh politician D P
Yadav, for destruction of evidence.
