"A city court convicted Sharma Nov 7, 2003, and awarded him the death penalty."
New Delhi, July 16 - Sushil Sharma, who is serving life imprisonment for murdering his wife Naina Sahni and throwing her body into a Delhi restaurant's tandoor, Wednesday withdrew his parole plea after the Delhi High Court refused to grant him parole.

Justice Pratibha Rani said: I am not inclined to grant parole. The petition is dismissed as withdrawn.

Sharma had sought parole for three months, saying he needs to take care of his ailing mother who has been advised to undergo a knee surgery and physiotherapy.

Sharma, a former Youth Congress leader, was convicted for murdering his wife Naina Sahni, whom he suspected of infidelity.

He shot her with his licensed revolver July 2, 1995, took her body to a restaurant, chopped the body into small pieces and tried to burn it in the restaurant's tandoor (oven).

A city court convicted Sharma Nov 7, 2003, and awarded him the death penalty.

The high court upheld his death sentence in February 2007. The Supreme Court, however, commuted the death penalty to life imprisonment Oct 8, 2013.
