Court seeks proper apology from duo who threatened AVUT chief

Court seeks proper apology from duo who threatened AVUT chief

A Delhi court on Saturday directed two men, accused of threatening the chairperson of the Association of Victims of Uphaar Tragedy (AVUT) in 2007, to file their apology in a proper manner after which the further course of action would be considered.

Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Sumit Dass also asked the accused, Praveen Shankar Sharma and Deepak Kathpalia, who had earlier tendered an "unconditional apology" on a piece of paper to AVUT chairperson Neelam Krishnamoorthy, to publish their apology in the leading newspapers.
The court then posted the matter to August 1.
Krishnamoorthy, who lost two minor children in the Uphaar fire tragedy, has been fighting a legal battle on behalf of the victims' families for the last 20 years. She had alleged in her complaint that she and her husband were harassed by the accused inside the Patiala House court premises on the evening of May 10, 2007. Krishnamoorthy had gone to the court to attend the trial proceedings in the 1997 fire tragedy case.
Kathpalia and Sharma, then employed by the owners of the Uphaar cinema hall in the national capital, were accused of passing lewd remarks against Krishnamoorthy and taking her photographs.AGENCIES
