Rohit Tiwari murder: Court refuses to grant interim bail to wife

Rohit Shekhar Tiwari.

New Delhi, (Asian independent) A Delhi court on Tuesday junked the interim bail application moved by the wife of former Uttarakhand Chief Minister N.D. Tiwari’s son Rohit Shekhar Tiwari, who was allegedly murdered by her last year.

Apoorva Shukla Tiwari knocked on the doors of the court seeking bail for two months on the ground that she suffered from a slipped disc injury after falling in Tihar Jail.

Additional Sessions Judge Sandeep Yadav, after rejecting her bail, directed the Tihar Jail Superintendent to take her to Delhi’s Safdarjung Hospital “for consultation and medical treatment”.

The jail authorities told the court in a report that her health condition is “good and satisfactory and that she was receiving all prescribed medicines from the jail dispensary”.

She was arrested last year for allegedly murdering her husband, who was smothered and strangled to death allegedly on the night of April 15-16 last year.
