After bail, it's Blue Ice for Manu Sharma

Three years after Jessica Lall was shot, main accused Manu Sharma, son of Haryana Power Minister Venod Sharma, was let out on bail. And almost immediately, he was back in the news—as owner of the hippest hangout in Chandigarh.

Called Blue Ice, the 29-year-old now runs Blue Ice, a pub-cum-discotheque, in Sector 17. Other than hosting 'elite' parties, Blue Ice, known for its music and cocktails, has been renovated thrice since it opened in 2002.

The Sharma family also owns a chain of hotels, restaurants and cinema theatres in the region, including the Piccadilly hotels and two sugar mills.

With Sharma in the Hooda Cabinet, the family had always maintained top political connections. Minister Sharma’s sister-in-law, Jayshree, is the daughter of former President Shankar Dayal Sharma.

Manu, who studied in a government school here and at Jaipur’s Mayo College later, was initially looking after the sugar mills.

Says Sunil Parthi, a family friend, "The past seven years were traumatic for the family. Today, we got justice in the New Delhi court. We thank God for hearing our prayers".
