New Delhi: Suhaib Ilyasi, who once hosted the popular television crime series ‘India’s Most Wanted’, has been sentenced to life in jail for the murder of his wife 17 years ago. The 51-year-old was held guilty of murder by a Delhi court on Saturday.
Anju Ilyasi, 30, was found in her east Delhi home on January 11, 2000, with multiple stab wounds. Suhaib Ilyasi had told the police that she had committed suicide. Three months later, he was arrested on charges of dowry harassment.
Anju’s mother and sister told a sub-divisional magistrate that she had been driven to suicide by Suhaib Ilyasi.
An autopsy report hadn’t established then if Anju had stabbed herself or was murdered.
Years later, Anju’s mother demanded that Suhaib Ilyasi be tried
