New Delhi, Feb 13 (UNI) A city court is likely to pronounce its verdict in the Kunjum Budhiraja murder case on Friday.
Additional sessions judge S P Garg was to pronounce the verdict in the nine-year-old case today but reserved the order due to the absence of main accused in the case Romesh Sharma, the alleged frontman of underworld don Dawood Ibrahim.
There are seven accused in the case, including Sharma. Others who figure in the chargesheet include his nephew Surinder Mishra and two women Tejinder Virdi alias Dolly and Jaspreet Virdi alias Sonu.
Budding fashion designer Kunjum was allegedly murdered at a farmhouse on March 20, 1999 by people engaged by Surinder Mishra.
During the investigation, it was allegedly found that Surinder Mishra, Dolly and Sonu wanted to get rid of Kunjum as they felt that while they were taking care of Sharma and attending to his court cases, Sharma was giving away his property to Kunjum.
Meanwhile, Sharma today appeared in the Tees Hazari court in the helicopter case, in which he is one of the four accused who have been charged with grabbing a Mumbai-based businessman's chopper.
