Grover's parents Amarnath and Neelam met the Additional Police Commissioner (Crime) Deven Bharti and urged him to put up a strong review petition so that Maria should be tried for murder and conspiracy.
Grover was brutally killed by Maria's boyfriend Jerome three years back. After this, the body was chopped into pieces and burnt. On June 30 this year, Maria was awarded a maximum three years imprisonment for destroying evidence while her boyfriend and former Navy officer Emile Jerome got a 10-year jail term for the brutal killing.
"We have made our own observations after going through the verdict copy in detail. The judge and public prosecutor have ignored various misleading and contradictory statements given by Maria and Jerome. Maria was equally guilty of the crime," Amarnath said.
"It was Maria who called my son to her place. My son's friends Nishant Lal and P W Haresh had given statements to the police corroborating that Maria had called Neeraj to her home," Neeraj's father claimed displaying a copy of his findings.
"Nishant had also stated Maria was angry with Neeraj. Deepak had stated Maria had asked him if Neeraj was cheating her and avoiding to give her a role in serials. After this Maria went away angrily," Amarnath said.
"Our observations will surely help the police to prepare a strong case in the High court and secure strong punishment for Maria," Amarnath added.
