City police are all set to challenge the lower court order absolving the Kannada actress Maria Susairaj and ex-Navy officer Jerome of murder and conspiracy charge in the murder case of TV executive Neeraj Grover.
A Sessions Court had on July 1 absolved Maria and her boyfriend Emile Jerome of murder and criminal conspiracy charges after holding them guilty of lesser offences.
"We will soon move the High court challenging the lower court's order. The accused had pre-planned the murder. They should be charged with murder and criminal conspiracy," said Additional Police Commissioner (Crime) Deven Bharti.
Jerome was convicted on the charge of culpable homicide not amounting to murder under section 304 (part I) IPC which attracts life term in jail or imprisonment up to ten years.
Both he and Maria were also found guilty of trying to destroy evidence under section 201 IPC which provides for a maximum three years in jail.
