The Supreme Court refuses to give more time to the owner of 'Saravana Bhavan' to surrender for the end of his life

NEW DELHI: On Tuesday he refused to entertain the founders of the South Indian food chain, and sought more time for medical reasons to surrender for a life sentence in one case.

A bank headed by Judge NV Ramana dismissed Rajagopal's petition and said his illness had not been filed before during the appeal hearing in the case.

Rajagopal was due to surrender on July 7 to serve to assassinate an employee in October 2001 to marry his wife.

Previously, an apex court bank had dismissed the appeals of nine convicts, including Rajagopal, and upheld the verdict of the Madras High Court that granted them the useful life.

The higher court had improved in 2009 the 10-year prison term granted by a local court to Rajagopal and another eight in the murder case.
