New Delhi: In a relief to real-estate barons Sushil and Gopal Ansal, the Supreme Court today refused to entertain a plea filed against the Delhi High Court order quashing criminal proceeding lodged for allegedly threatening the Association of Victims of Uphaar Tragedy (AVUT) chairperson, Neelam Krishnamoorthy.
A bench comprising justices A R Dave and Adarsh Kumar Goyal upheld the Delhi High Court order, passed on July 14 this year, quashing the decision of the trial court to take cognizance of the offence against the Ansal brothers and two others. “We don’t find substance in the case,” the bench said.
It has been alleged by Krishnamoorthy that she and her husband were harassed by Deepak Kathpalia and Praveen Sharma inside the Patiala House court premises on May 10, 2007, when they were emerging out of court room.
