Kathmandu. Kuandik Bishimbayev, the former finance minister of Kazakhstan, who tried to hide the murder of his wife, was sentenced to 24 years in prison by the court. The Supreme Court of Kazakhstan handed down a verdict on May 13 and sentenced him to 24 years in prison.

He had been taking many measures to prove himself innocent. But based on the CCTV footage, the court there convicted him in March.

Bishimbayev beat his 31-year-old wife Saltnat Nukenova to death in a restaurant belonging to a relative in the city of Astana in November 2023. Nukenova died because of her husband's beating. His dead body was found in the same restaurant on November 9.

The debate started in March after a case was filed against Bishimbayev on the charge of killing his wife last February. But Bishimbayev has been saying that he is innocent. In the court, he gave a statement that his wife died due to a head injury when she fell in the toilet after drinking alcohol. But medical tests showed that he did not have a large amount of alcohol in his body.

Nukenova's mother claimed that Bishimbayev killed her daughter by torturing her for eight hours in a VIP booth without CCTV cameras. After this, the police continued to investigate the incident. Although not complete in that sequence, Bishimbayev beat his wife and 12 videos recorded on his mobile phone on the day of the incident were also found.

The court showed the CCTV footage during the hearing in March. Which was also broadcast live. In the footage, Bishimbayev is seen punching and kicking his wife by pulling her hair. Similarly, in the video recorded on his mobile phone, he can be heard abusing his wife.

After this evidence submitted to the court, Bishimbayev finally admitted that he had beaten his wife and that she died in an unknown manner in the debate on April 1st.

On this basis, the court sentenced him to 24 years in prison while giving the final verdict on the charge of torture and murder. Now the law against domestic violence against women and children has also been tightened.
