Uttarakhand High Court has rejected the bail application of former Uttar Pradesh minister Amarmani Tripathi, a convict in the Madhumita Shukla murder case.
A division bench comprising Acting Chief Justice B C Kandpal and justice Sudhanshu Dhulia rejected Tripathi's bail application, after CBI counsels contended that if released on bail, the former minister might influence witnesses in other murder cases in which he is facing trials, officials said.
Tripathi had appealed to the court to grant him bail stating that his son had to undergo an operation of gall bladder and there was no one in the family to look him after as his wife Madhumani was also in jail.
However, the CBI counsels opposed his application and said there were other members in the family who could look after his son.
Tripathi, his wife Madhumani and two others were convicted and sentenced to life imprisonment by a Dehra Dun court in the murder case of poetess Madhumita Shukla in Lucknow in May 2003.
