NEW DELHI: Neelam Krishnamurthy, convener of the Association of Victims of Uphaar Tragedy who lost both her children in the fire that engulfed a theatre in Delhi, met CBI director Anil Kumar Sinha on Thursday and expressed her disappointment over the Supreme Court’s verdict on the matter.
The CBI director assured Krishnamurthy that the agency would file a review petition after examining the detailed judgment. “Once the detail judgment comes out, the CBI will thoroughly examine it and file a review petition. The CBI director (Anil Kumar Sinha) has assured us that they will definitely file review petition in the case,” Krishnamurthy told Express.
She said Sinha had also assured them that the petition as early as it is possible. Krishnamurthy, who lost her 17-year-old daughter and 13-year-old son in the tragedy on June 13, 1997, said that the apex court had directed the Ansals to deposit the money within the next three months.
