In Ajay Tiwari vs. State, the High Court of Delhi denied relief to a murder convict Ajay Tiwari. He wished to remarry to ‘Fill colors in his Lonely life’.

Facts of the case 

Here the Appellant Ajay Tiwari was guilty of the murder of his own wife. His minor child was an eye-witness to an offence. Hence, he got punished with life imprisonment u/s 302 IPC on 26-10-2018.

The appellant asked the Delhi High Court for 3 months of interim suspension of his sentence. The reason is to find a suitable match for himself for removing his loneliness. The appellant is 45 years old man willing to remarry. He wished to fill colors in his life as the appellant doesn’t want to live lonely any further.

Arguments before the Court

Ms. Alka Singh defending the appellant states that he wishes to start his family life. The appellant has agricultural land which is lying unseen since his arrest. She further stated that the appellant has old and ailing parents. He wishes to spend time with them before their demise as they aren’t keeping well.

Mr. Dutta, The Additional Public Prosecutor for the state, counteracts the appeal filed. He says the appellant doesn’t have any agricultural land. In fact, his daughter has made a statement to this effect that he has already disposed of the land that he owned. Also, there are three other sons to look after old parents. Thus, the presence of the appellant is not required to look after them.
