BMW case: HC rejects Sanjeev Nanda's bail plea
October 04, 2008 16:32 IST
The Delhi [Images] high court on Saturday rejected the bail plea of Sanjeev Nanda, son of former naval chief S M Nanda, who was sentenced to five years' rigorous imprisonment for mowing down six persons in BMW [Images] hit-and-run case of 1999.
"I am of the view that the applicant (Nanda) does not deserve suspension of sentence during the pendency of the case," Justice Kailash Gambhir said.
The court, however, was of the opinion that Nanda's appeal challenging his conviction and quantum of sentence be heard on a day-to-day basis for early disposal of the case.
Nanda filed the bail plea in the high court along with an appeal following his conviction by the trial court on September 5.
