‘India’s Most Wanted’ host Ilyasi convicted of wife’s murder, moves HC

New Delhi: Former TV anchor and producer Suhaib Ilyasi today moved the Delhi High Court challenging his conviction and life imprisonment for the offence of killing his wife Anju 18 years ago.
The appeal is likely to come up for hearing on March 15 before a bench of Justices Vipin Sanghi and P S Teji.

Ilyasi, who is in custody after his conviction on December 20, 2017, for stabbing his wife to death, has also filed a bail application before the High Court. Ilyasi, Editor-in-Chief of Bureaucracy Today magazine, faced the trial for 17 years in the dowry death of wife Anju Ilyasi.

Anju was rushed to a hospital on January 11, 2000 with stab wounds she received at her East Delhi residence and died at her Mayur Vihar house. Charges were later framed against Ilyasi after his sisters-in-law and mother-in-law alleged that he used to torture his wife for dowry.

Ilyasi shot to fame after hosting reality TV show “India’s Most Wanted”.
