Suhaib Ilyasi, a popular host of well-known crime show "India's Most Wanted" was convicted in his wife's murder case, against which he had appealed in the higher court.
The former TV anchor was sentenced life term jail on December 16 last year after he was convicted by a trial court on charges of stabbing his wife Anju to death. The court said he had "committed murder and given it a colour of suicide".
