SC refuses bail to murder accused
The Supreme Court (SC) refused to grant bail to four persons, who were sent to judicial custody on the charge of killing Samjhana Shah Saxena two years ago.
A division bench of justices Anup Raj Sharma and Ram Kumar Prasad Shah upheld the orders of the Kathmandu District Court (KDC) and Patan Appellate Court to send them to judicial custody and prosecute the murder case.The case is pending in the KDC.
Challenging the orders of the lower courts, four relatives of Samjhana, including husband Laxmi Prasad, mother-in-law Rama Devi and father-in-law Amar, had moved the SC.
The SC also upheld the decision of the KDC and Patan Appellate Court to issue warrant orders against the other accused in the murder case, Anup Saxena and Simran Saxena.
