A bench comprising justices AR 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. Senior advocate KTS Tulsi, appearing for AVUT chairperson Neelam Krishnamoorthy, contended that the High Court was wrong in throwing out the case at threshold.
    
He said the High Court has ignored the entire evidence in the case. 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 the evening of May 10, 2007, when they were emerging out of court room.
    
Krishnamoorthy had gone to the court for attending the trial proceedings in the Uphaar fire tragedy case. Kathpalia and Sharma were accused of passing lewd remarks against Krishnamoorthy and clicking her photographs.
