New Delhi: Vishal Yadav, serving life term
in the Nitish Katara murder case today informed Delhi High
Court that his ailing grand father passed away on January
one and the thirteenth day ritual is scheduled for January 11.

Filing an affidavit before the bench of Justice Anil
Kumar and Justice Mool Chand Garg, Vishal`s younger brother
Vivek said that his brother was not able to avail the four
hour custody parole granted by the bench to perform the last
rite of his grandfather on January two as the cremation took
place on January one evening itself.


He also told the court that the `Tervi` (the
thirteenth day ceremony) is fixed for January 11.


Vishal`s bail plea to attend his sister Sarika`s
marriage, scheduled for January 25, is listed for hearing
tomorrow.

Recently, he had attended the engagement ceremony after
the court granted five hours custody parole to him.


Vishal and Vikas Yadav, nephew and son of controversial
politician from Uttar Pradesh D P Yadav, were convicted and
sentenced to life imprisonment by a trial court in May 2008
for killing Katara, son of a former IAS officer in February
2002 as they were against Katara`s intimacy with Vikas`s
sister Bharati.
