Udupi, Sep 19, 2018: The Supreme Court has denied bail to Niranjan Bhat, one of the prime accused in the businessman Bhasker Shetty murder case of Udupi.
The accused is an astrologer from Nandalike and had reportedly helped the wife and son of Bhasker Shetty in executing the crime.
Niranjan Bhat had moved the Supreme Court after the High Court had earlier denied him bail. The Supreme Court Bench led by Justice S A Bobde said that the accused can file the bail application once again after the examination of all the 36 witnesses in this case is completed.
It is believed that the accused after killing Bhasker Shetty had disposed off his body by burning it in a Homa Kunda.
