Mumbai, Jun 15 (UNI) A city court on Tuesday will hear the bail application of Maria Monica Susairaj, an alleged accused in the murder case of Neeraj Grover, a creative head of Synergy Adlabs.
She was arrested on May 21 for allegedly abetting 27-year-old Grover's murder. The murder took place on May 7 this year.
Earlier, prosecution had sought time to file reply on fresh application filed by defence advocate Nitin Pradhan seeking copy of her confessional statement.
Additional Session Court Judge P H Malli granted time and then adjourned the hearing on both the pleas of confessional statement as well as bail application till June 17.
Susairaj(27), who has acted in a couple of Kannada movies, had come to Mumbai to gain entry into the Hindi television serials. She met Grover and asked him to get a suitable role for her. Thereafter, the two became close friends and reportedly got into an illicit relationship.
Matthew, Susairaj's fiance, a night before the murder called her and heard a male voice. Upon inquiring, Susairaj told him that Grover was helping her to shift 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 was still 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 300 pieces. Later, the duo allegedly stuffed the body parts into three duffel bags, drove to Manor in Thane district, doused the bags with petrol and set them on fire.
