Ghaziabad: Utsav Sharma, who had
inflicted grievous wounds on murdered teenager Aarushi`s
father Rajesh Talwar, was on Wednesday remanded in judicial custody
till February 8 by a local court here.

Sharma, who had in February last year attacked Haryana
DGP SPS Rathore, convicted in the Ruchika molestation case,
outside a Panchkula court, was produced before judge Preeti
Singh in the morning.

"He has been remanded in judicial custody till
February 8," a senior police official. 30-year-old Sharma, a
graduate from the prestigious National Institute of Design,
Ahmedabad, has been charged with attempt to murder.

54-year-old Talwar was attacked by Sharma with a
cleaver causing deep cuts on his face and hands as he came out
of the court here after filing a petition before Singh
challenging CBI`s closure report in the Aarushi-Hemraj twin
murder case and demanding a fresh probe.

Talwar, who was first rushed to a nearby hospital, was
later shifted to Apollo Hospital in Delhi where doctors have
described his condition as stable.

Sources said Sharma told the police that he was upset
with the slow progress in the Aarushi case.
