Thane prison authorities told the Bombay High Court that they have provided a bed, blanket and pillow as requested by artist Chintan Upadhyay, arrested for allegedly murdering his wife Hema and her lawyer Harish Bhambhani.

Chintan UpadhyayThe prison authorities were responding to a petition filed by Chintan, who is lodged in Thane jail, seeking a bed to sleep in his cell as he is unable to sleep on the floor due to spondylitis.

The jail authorities today told a division bench headed by Justice R V More that a bed, blanket and pillow have been provided to Chintan, and if in future he requires such facilities then he may request the jail superintendent.

Following this, Chintan’s lawyer withdrew the petition.

Chintan was arrested on December 28, last year in connection with the murder of his estranged wife Hema and her lawyer Bhambhani.

Four others accused in the murder case — Pradip Rajbhar, Vijay Rajbhar, Shivkumar Rajbhar and Azaad Rajbhar — are also currently lodged in judicial custody.

However, the main accused, Vidyadhar Rajhbhar, is still at large.

Hema, an installation artist, and Bhambhani were found dead in a drain in Dhanukar Wadi in suburban Kandivli on December 11, last year.
