New Delhi: The Delhi High Court has reserved its order on a plea of real estate tycoons Sushil and Gopal Ansal and two of their employees, against a lower court summonning them on a complaint of AVUT convener that they abused her.

Justice SP Garg reserved the order after hearing all the related parties in the case.

Neelam Krishnamurthy, convener of the Association of Victims of Uphaar Tragedy (AVUT), representing the victims and families of those killed in the Uphaar Cinema fire of June 13, 1997, was allegedly abused by Ansal brothers and two of their employees.

The high court in July 2007 had stayed the summons issued by the lower court against Sushil Ansal, Gopal Ansal and his employees Deepak Kathpalia and P.S. Sharma on their plea seeking quashing of summons.

Krishnamoorthy had alleged that the two employees of Ansal brothers had abused and threatened her at the behest of their employer.

She had alleged that her pictures were taken on May 10, 2007, when she was coming out of the courtroom of trial court, where trial against the Ansal brothers and others was on for their alleged culpability in the June 13, 1997, tragedy.

Krishnamoorthy had lost her two minor children in the fire in which 57 others were asphyxiated during the screening of Hindi blockbuster "Border".
