New Delhi, July 17 (IANS) Vishal Yadav, convicted in the 2002 Nitish Katara murder case, Tuesday told the Delhi High Court that prosecution witness Ajay Katara should be prosecuted for perjury for speaking falsehood before the court.
The court was hearing appeals of Vishal Yadav, his cousin Vikas Yadav, son of former MP D.P. Yadav, and hired killer Sukhdev Pehalwan, who are serving life terms in Tihar.
Vishal was convicted in 2008 along with Vikas for kidnapping and murdering Nitish Katara, a close friend of Vikas’ sister Bharti.
The duo killed Nitish Katara, son of an Indian Administrative Service officer, on the night of Feb 17, 2002, after abducting him from a marriage party in Uttar Pradesh’s Ghaziabad as they were opposed to his relationship with Bharti.
