Kanpur: All accused in Jyoti Dasani's murder case have been ordered to appear before a sessions court today for trail by Chief metropolitan magistrate. Piyush's parents who are also accused in the case had failed to appear before the court on November 8.

In a relief for the parents, the Court has allowed the application of Piyush's parents seeking exemption from physical appearance in the court on health ground.

The magistrate also granted the requests of defence counsels of other accused Ranu Kannaujia, Sonu and Ashish, for required copies of the case despite objections of Jyoti Dasani's counsel.

Piyush Dasani had allegedly got his wife Jyoti killed with the help of his friends Ashish, Sonu, Renu and Awadhesh on July 28 last. Before the muder, the couple had taken dinner together in a restaurant.

Thereafter during the drive, Piyush had handed over Jyoti and his car to other co-accused and they executed his plan.

Piyush Dasani, is a biscuit billionaire's son and Jyoti was a gutkha baron's daughter.
