Former Congress leader Aschap Papadopoulos has been granted bail by the Supreme Court in connection with a case related to his conviction in connection to the 2002 murder of his wife.
The apex court on Monday granted bail to the former Congress leader, who was sentenced to seven years in prison in 2013 for murdering his wife on November 5, 2002.
Papadopoulos, the son of former President Pranab Mukherjee, was sentenced for killing his wife Prasanta Chaturvedi in her house in Kolkata.
His wife died in the hospital a week later.
The case has been referred to a special court to be held under the Prevention of Cruelty to Women Act, 2017, by the Bombay High Court.
