New Delhi: The Delhi High Court Wednesday granted five-hour parole to Vishal Yadav, who is serving life sentence for killing Nitish Katara, to attend his sister's engagement ceremony on December 26.

A division bench of Justices Anil Kumar and Vipin Sanghi said Vishal will attend the function from 5.00 pm to 10.00 in the presence of Delhi and UP police sleuths.

The bench fixed January 7 for hearing Vishal's bail plea to attend his sister's marriage functions, scheduled in January.

On December 18, Vishal filed a petition before the High Court for interim bail, seeking permission to perform his sister, Sarika' marriage rituals.

Citing itineraries for the functions, Vishal said the engagement ceremony will be held on December 26, the marriage is scheduled for January 20 and the next day the Gurudwara wedding is scheduled to take place, besides the reception which is fixed for January 25, 2010.

Vishal, along with cousin Vikas, has been sentenced to life imprisonment by a trial court in May last year for killing Nitish Katara, son of a former IAS officer, in February 2002 as they were against Katara's intimacy with their sister, Bharati Yadav.
