Ghaziabad, May 5 (IANS) The hearing on bail plea of the BSP’s Rajya Sabha member Narendra Kashyap, who was arrested in the case of his daughter-in-law’s alleged dowry death, was on Thursday adjourned by a court here for the third time.
The bail application was first assigned to the court of Judge G. Sridevi. She adjourned the hearing, seeking the forensic report on the death of Kashyap’s daughter-in-law.
The next hearing was adjourned when Sridevi was elevated as the district judge. On Thursday too, the hearing was adjourned to May 10.
A police complaint was filed by lawyer Hariom Kashyap, the uncle of Narendra Kashyap’s late daughter-in-law Himanshi.
The MP and his wife Devendri Devi have been charged with causing the death of their daughter-in-law, but they tried to dodge police and got themselves admitted in Yashoda Hospital complaining of chest pain.
Police, however, arrested them after discussing the health issues with the attending doctors.
The MP’s son, Sagar, was also arrested. All the three were sent to jail. Three other accused are on missing and still on the run, according to police.
The detained MP, meanwhile, moved an application before the court of the Chief Judicial Magistrate (CJM), claiming that since parliament was in session, he should be allowed to attend the session under police custody.
The CJM’s court reserved its order after hearing arguments from both sides.
