New Delhi, Dec 21: The Delhi High Court on Friday ordered the immediate release of 1995 Tandoor murder case convict Sushil Sharma.
A Bench of Justices Siddharth Mridul and Sangita Dhingra Sehgal allowed the application filed by Sharma seeking his release.
Earlier, the Sentence Review Board had dismissed Sharma’s plea seeking premature release, saying that he had been convicted for the brutal killing of his wife.
Sharma’s counsel Amit Sahni told the court that Sharma is behind the bars since 1995 and has already undergone the maximum prescribed sentence.
Congress worker Naina Sahni was murdered on the night of July 2, 1995.
Her husband Sushil Sharma killed her, chopped up her body and tried to burn it in the tandoor of a restaurant.
