Bail for 'India's Most Wanted' Suhaib Ilyasi

By Our Staff Reporter

NEW DELHI, JUNE 2. The Delhi High Court today granted bail to Suhaib Ilyasi of ``India's Most Wanted'' television serial fame in the Anju Ilyasi dowry death case.

Allowing his bail application, Mr. Justice Dalveer Bhandari asked him to furnish a personal bail bond of Rs. 2 lakhs with two sureties of like amount in the trial court.

Suhaib Ilyasi was in judicial custody since March on charges of subjecting his wife Anju Ilyasi to cruelty, dowry death and destruction of evidence.

He was arrested on March 28 after the city police lodged a First Information Report on the basis of an inquest report by the area Magistrate, Mr. Ravi Dadhich.

The Magistrate had asked the police to further investigate the case after the elder sister of Anju Ilyasi, Ms. Rashmi Singh, and her mother, Ms. Rukma Singh, recorded their statements before Mr. Dadhich holding Suhaib responsible for the death of her sister.

There was jubilation among his relatives and friends gathered outside when the Judge passed his order in the crowded courtroom today. However, due to paucity of time the bail bond and sureties could not be executed on Friday. He is likely to come out of Tihar Jail tomorrow.

The Judge had reserved his order on May 25 after the Special Public Prosecutor, Mr. R.K. Anand, and counsel for the accused, Mr. Rajinder Singh, concluded their argument for and against the bail plea.

The Judge also imposed three conditions on the accused, One, he shall surrender his passport to the police; second, he shall not leave the Capital without court permission; and third, he shall not tamper with evidence or threaten witnesses.
