Patna, Apr 28 (UNI) Patna High Court today rejected the bail plea of former MLA Rajan Tiwari in CPI(M) legislator Ajit Sarkar murder case.
A division bench of the court of Justice Mr Shailesh Kumar Sinha and Justice Ms Mridula Mishra turned down the bail petition of Mr Tiwari. However, the court granted conditional bail to another accused Anil Kumar Yadav.
Earlier, the special CBI court had awarded life imprisonment to both Mr Tiwari and Yadav. The court had also awarded life to RJD MP Rajesh Ranjan, alias Pappu Yadav, in connection with the murder case. Mr Yadav is currently lodged in Tihar jail in New Delhi.
Later, challenging the CBI courts verdict, all the three accused had filed separate petitions before Patna High Court where the applications were pending.
