Katara case: Court to hear plea against convicts

Katara case: Court to hear plea against convicts

CNN-IBN had reported that both convicts Vikas and Vishal Yadav had made 151 medical outings in 4 years.

New Delhi: A Delhi court is expected to hear Nitish Katara's mother's complaint against convicts Vikas and Vishal Yadav on Friday. Katara's mother Neelam Katara had earlier claimed they have been enjoying preferential treatment at Tihar Jail.

CNN-IBN had reported that both the accused had made 151 medical outings in four years.

The Delhi High Court on February 1 asked Tihar Jail authorities to produce medical records of Vikas Yadav who is serving a life term, on a plea that he had visited hospitals 87 times by misusing his financial and political influence.

The court's order came on the petition of Neelam Katara, mother of the victim, seeking a direction to the jail authorities and AIIMS to produce entire record relating to Yadav's ailments and his visits to the premier hospital.

While the convicts had moved the high court seeking reversal of the trial court's findings in the case, the Delhi Police and Nilam Katara had filed appeal for award of death penalty for them on the ground that the offence fell under the 'rarest of rare' category.

Neelam Katara, in her petition, had referred to the responses received from Tihar Jail authorities under the RTI on the issue.

Nitish Katara, a business executive, was abducted from a marriage party in Ghaziabad on the intervening night of February 16-17, 2002 and was later killed by the convicts for his alleged intimacy with Bharti Yadav, sister of Vikas Yadav.
