Dowry case: SC rejects bail plea of Chiranjeevi's son-in-law

The Supreme Court today dismissed the anticipatory bail plea of G R Sirish Bharadwaj, estranged younger son-in-law of Praja Rajyam president and Telegu mega star Chiranjeevi, facing a dowry harassment case.

A vacation Bench of Justices G S Singhvi and Chandramauli Prasad, rejecting the plea of Sirish's counsel that bail be granted as the two families were seeking an amicable settlement, asked the accused to surrender before the court concerned in Hyderabad.

Srija, youngest daughter of Chirajneevi, married Shirish in 2007 amidst high drama against the wishes of her family, so much so that the couple rushed to the Delhi High Court and obtained police protection. The couple also held a press conference to denounce Chiranjeevi's alleged attempt to break the marriage.

However, four years down the line, the marriage turned out to be a disaster with Srija filing a complaint of dowry harassment against Shirish and his mother.
