Mumbai, Jun 12 (UNI) A local court today adjourned till June 17, hearing of the bail application of Mariah Monica Susairaj, an alleged accused in Neeraj Grover murder case, after prosecution sought time to file its reply on an application, while seeking copy of her confessional statement.
Additional Sessions Judge P H Malli granted time and then adjourned the hearing of the bail application till June 17.
Susairaj (27) allegedly murdered Grover, a top executive of Synergy Adlabs and former creative head of Balaji Telefilms, on May 7, this year. She was arrested on May 21 for allegedly abetting 27-year-old Grover's murder.
Susairaj, who had acted in a couple of Kannada movies, had come to Mumbai to gain entry into the Hindi television industry. She met Grover and asked him to get a suitable role for her. Thereafter, the two became close friends and were reportedly into illicit relationship.
Her boyfriend, Emile Jerome Matthew, a naval officer who was to get engaged to Susairaj, called her and heard a male voice a night before the murder. Upon inquiring, Susairaj told him that Grover was helping her with shifting to her new residence at Malad and would leave soon.
However, unconvinced with her reply, Matthew caught a late night flight from Kochi, where he was based, to Mumbai and arrived in the city early morning, to meet Susairaj on May 7. After entering the flat, he found Grover there with her. He became angry and in a fit of rage, allegedly stabbed Grover with a kitchen knife and then cut the body into several parts. Later, the duo allegedly stuffed the body parts into three bags and burnt them at Manor in Thane district.
