[Rajiv Khosla sentencing] Delhi High Court seeks report on presence of other judges on dais in CMM Court

On November 6 last year, Khosla was convicted by a Delhi court for assaulting Kohli in 1994. She was then a lawyer practising at the Tis Hazari Court. CMM Gajender Singh Nagar found Khosla guilty of offences under Sections 323 (voluntarily causing hurt) and 506 (criminal intimidation) of the Indian Penal Code, more than 27 years after Kohli filed the complaint against Khosla.

Back in August 1994, Kohli accused Khosla of pressuring her to join various protests and demonstrations. On July 29, 1994, she was asked to attend a seminar on family courts but declined as she was busy. Khosla then threatened her and said that all the facilities provided to her would be taken away.

She filed a civil suit seeking an injunction, but soon after that, her table and chair at the court complex were removed.

In August 1994, she moved an application for changing the nature of the suit from permanent injunction to mandatory injunction. Though the Court asked the parties to maintain status quo, the Civil Judge said that she would also visit the site on the same day.

While Kohli was waiting on her seat for the judge, Khosla arrived with another co-accused named PS Rathi and a mob of 40-50 people, pulled Kohli by her hair, twisted her arms and dragged her while hurling abuses and threats.
