According to the prosecution, Anu and her brother Ajay Sharma entered into criminal conspiracy and strangulated the deceased to death. Later, in order to project it as a case of suicide, the tied the body into a noose with the rear door of the bus of the deceased.
Principal Sessions Judge Rajouri Shahzad Azeem after hearing both the sides observed that as per prosecution story, the deceased was done to death in pursuance of a well planned conspiracy, engineered by none other than wife and brother-in-law of deceased and the motive attributed so far is that Anu Sharma wanted to get rid of the deceased and in accomplishing this plan, Ajay Sharma stood with Anu Sharma and finally deceased was strangulated to death. From the material collected during investigation and the prosecution witnesses recorded so far, there appears reasonable grounds for believing that the accused have been guilty of an offence punishable with death or imprisonment for life, therefore, keeping in view the nature of offence, severity of punishment and the alleged role attributed to the accused persons, they cannot be enlarged on bail at this stage.
