Justice Dinesh Kumar Sharma has issued a notice requesting Delhi police to acquiesce in his delay in filing an appeal, the delay was of the 15 months after the court’s trial was passed the order.

Tharoor’s advocate disputed the 15-month delay in filing a request for revision due to a discharge order issued on August 18, 2021. Pahwa further said the client was not provided with a copy of his request of revision filed before the court. Pahwa protested the delay and demanded that it should be discussed first. The HC then issued a notice to Tharoor, which was accepted by Pahwa.

It said, “Even when the deceased has suicidal thoughts and committed suicide, or is suspected of causing serious injury or endangering life, limb or health, as is the case in the prosecution.” There was a premeditated action on the part of the defendant that could induce the deceased to commit suicide…”.
