SC court refuses to hear Haldiram`s owner`s plea

The Supreme Court on Monday declined to entertain a petition by Haldiram`s Group owner Prabhu Shankar Agarwal, seeking bail after being convicted for conspiring to kill a tea stall owner in Kolkata.



New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Monday declined to entertain a petition by Haldiram`s Group owner Prabhu Shankar Agarwal, seeking bail after being convicted for conspiring to kill a tea stall owner in Kolkata.

The vacation bench of the Supreme Court headed by Justice Deepak Verma and comprising Justice KS Radhakrishnan instead asked the petitioner to move Calcutta High Court for appropriate relief.

The court said the High Court will decide the matter without being influenced by its earlier observations.
Agarwal had hired a contract killer to kill tea stall owner Pramod Sharma Thakur, who had refused to remove his stall which was blocking the entrance of a large confectionery shop the businessman was about to open in the Burrabazar area of central Kolkata.

The contract killer, Gopal Tiwari, and three of his henchmen shot at and injured Pramod March 30, 2005.

Agarwal and the four others were sentenced to life imprisonment by a Kolkata court in January.
