On June 16th, a Sessions Court denied the temporary bail applications of the two accused Siddhesh Tamhankar and Khushi Sahjwani in the Kirti Vyas murder case of 2018.

Tamhankar and Sahjwani have been accused of killing Vyas , their colleague who was a  finance manager in B-Blunt Salon. The accused duo had an affair and killed Vyas as she had served notice to Tamhankar to terminate his employment. The murder took place on 16 March 2018, on Tamhankar’s last day of work.

Pleas were sent to the Court by both of them from jail on the basis of the High Power Committee (HPC) recommendations for the release of prisoners on temporary bail for decongestion of prisons during the pandemic.

It was noted by the Court that their pleas for bail on the merits of the case were rejected earlier and Sahjwani’s pleas for interim bail were also rejected by the High Court in September of last year.

“The deceased was working with the accused and she was murdered by them. Considering the gravity of the offence and now the matter is for framing of charge, with the further fact that all earlier applications for bail by the applicants were rejected by his court as well as the High Court, it is not proper to consider again the applications for interim bail.”, Additional Sessions Judge Shridhar M. Bhosle stated in his order and rejected their bail applications.
