SC says no Saravana Bhavan owner's plea

Saravana Bhavan chain of restaurants owner P Rajagopal (71), who is facing life sentence in a murder case, had sought the Supreme Court to the delay his prison sentence citing ill health, but his request was denied today. The apex court questioned the legitimacy of Rajagopal’s request as he had not reported any medical concerns during earlier hearings. In 2001, he was sentenced to 10 years in jail by a trial court on charges of killing Prince Santhakumar.
