Rajeshwari shettyUdupi : Rajeshwari Shetty, prime accused in the murder of her NRI husband Bhaskar Shetty, on Thursday withdrew her plea seeking bail after the Supreme Court indicated to her counsel that it cannot consider her appeal at present as the police wanted to carry out additional investigation in the case.

When Rajeshwari’s petition seeking release on bail came up for hearing before a Bench of Justice S.A Bobde and Justice L. Nageswara Rao, counsel for the State said that additional investigation will be carried out in the case.

When the Bench indicated that it cannot consider the plea for bail at this stage, her counsel sought court’s permission to withdraw the petition with the liberty to renew the prayer for bail after six months or after additional investigation is over, whichever is earlier.

Following this submission, the court treated the petition as “dismissed as withdrawn” while granting liberty to her to approach the court again as sought for.

Bhaskar Shetty, who owned big businesses in Saudi Arabia and Udupi, went missing from his house here on July 28, 2016. The charge sheet has alleged that Rajeshwari Shetty had killed her husband.
