NITESH KATARA MURDER CASE

Nitesh Katara Murder Case

Nitish Katara was 25 year old Indian business executive in Delhi who was killed in the early hours of 17 Feb 2002, by Vikas Yadav, the son of powerful offender politician D. P. Yadav. Nitish had lately graduated from the Institute of Management Technology, Ghaziabad, where, he'd fallen in love with his classmate, Bharti Yadav( Sister of Vikas). The trial court maintained that Nitish's homicide was a honour killing since the family failed to approve their relationship. Vikas and Vishal Yadav were afterwards found guilty by the trial Court and given life sentence on 30 May 2008. On Apr 2, 2014, Delhi High Court upheld the trial court verdict of life imprisonment to the accused. 

The Yadav family never authorized of the connection between the lovers. Katara was threatened many times. Nevertheless, he was an idealist, and believed in standing up to injustice. On the night of 17 Feb 2002, the pair attended a typical friend's wedding, where Yadav brothers, Vikas, and cousin were present. From there, Katara was taken for a drive by Vishal Yadav and Vikas Yadav, to never return. Katara's body was discovered beside the highway. He was battered to death with a hammer, diesel poured on him, and set aflame. The blood samples were gathered for DNA profiling to create the identity of Nitish Katara.

On Feb 6 2015, Delhi High Court on re appeal,gave-out sentence as 25 years extensive life imprisonment without remittance. On October 3, 2016, the Supreme Court sentenced Vikas and Vishal Yadav, as well as Sukhdev Pehelwan, the 3rd accused, to 25 years imprisonment without remission.
