New Delhi: The Delhi High Court Friday acquitted former TV anchor and producer Suhaib Ilyasi in his wife’s murder case.

A bench of Justices S Muralidhar and Vinod Goel allowed the appeal of Ilyasi challenging his conviction and life imprisonment for killing his wife, Anju, 18 years ago.

The trial court had on December 20, 2017 sentenced Ilyasi, who had shot into limelight after hosting TV crime show – ‘India’s Most Wanted’, to life term for stabbing his wife to death, saying he “committed murder and gave it a colour of suicide”.
