June 14, 2010 16:04 IST

The Supreme Court has refused to heat the bail petition filed by the owner of the Haldiram Group, Prabhu Shankar Agarwal, who has been convicted for conspiring to kill a tea stall owner in Kolkata.

The vacation bench headed by Justice Deepak Verma and comprising Justice K S Radhakrishnan asked Agarwal to move Calcutta high court for appropriate relief.

Agarwal had conspired with an extortionist to kill a tea stall owner, who had refused to sell his property to Agarwal. The tea stall owner escaped a bid on his life that was ordered by Agarwal.
