Vikas Yadav can leave jail for a day to attend sister's wedding

A division bench comprising Justice Anil Kumar and Justice Vipin Sanghi allowed Vikas Yadav to leave jail Nov 1. The court also directed two policemen to escort him while he is out of jail.

The high court had Thursday reserved its order on the plea of Vikas Yadav after hearing Delhi Police's contention that Vikas might escape if allowed out of jail.
Delhi Police had told the bench: "There would be more than 2,000 people attending the marriage and the ceremony is spread over three states of Delhi, Haryana and Uttar Pradesh. We have serious apprehension that he might escape from the place as it would be difficult for us to keep an eye on each visitor.

"We do not know who are the people attending the marriage, and a section of them might take him away even when the convict is released on custodial parole. We can't control and put restrictions on their events."

The court Friday allowed Vikas Yadav out for just one day.
Vikas Yadav, son of Uttar Pradesh politician D.P. Yadav, was convicted last year along with his cousin Vishal Yadav for kidnapping and murdering Nitish Katara, a close friend of Bharti.

The duo had kidnapped and killed Katara, son of an IAS officer, on the night of Feb 17, 2002, after abducting him from a marriage party in Ghaziabad as they were opposed to his relationship with Bharti.
