Delhi HC Denies Bail to Vishal Yadav in Nitish Katara Murder

The Delhi High Court today denied bail to Vishal Yadav, nephew of former Member of Parliament D P Yadav and a co-accused in the Nitish Katara murder case. 

Vishal is serving a life sentence for killing Nitish Katara, son of an Indian Administrative Service (IAS) officer. 

In June 2009, he was sentenced to life imprisonment for Katara's murder. 

Amrender Sharan, counsel for Yadav, submitted before the bench that his conduct during an interim bail earlier was good and therefore he should be given regular bail. 

Hearing the plea, the High Court bench of Justices B D Ahmed and Manmohan Singh ordered the petition be dismissed saying 'we cannot judge a person within four-five days'.

'His conduct might be good at the time of interim bail but it doesn't prove that same will be in nearby future,' said Justice Ahmed. 

Vishal and his cousin Vikas Yadav killed Nitish Katara on the night of February 17, 2002, after abducting him from a marriage party in Ghaziabad as they were opposed to Nitish's relationship with Bharti, Vikas's sister.
