New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Friday asked the Delhi police to file a status report on the alleged threat of underworld don Ravi Pujari to eliminate Sanjay Kapur, the estranged husband of Bollywood actress Karisma Kapoor.

A bench of Justices A K Sikri and Arun Misra asked the special cell to submit the report within two weeks after counsel Aman Hingorani and Priya Hingorani appearing for Sanjay Kapur told the court that he faced grave threat from the alleged gangster who had reportedly threatened to kill him if he ever entered Mumbai.

The couple’s matrimonial dispute is pending before a Bandra court in Mumbai, and Sanjay  a businessman based in Gurgaon wants the case to be transferred to Delhi as he fears threat to his life from the gangster.

The couple who have two children had initially filed a mutual consent divorce petition before a Bandra court in 2014. However, they withdrew their consent due to some reported financial disputes and custody battle of their children-boy and girl.

It is alleged that last month Sanjay had flown to Mumbai to attend a hearing in the Bandra Court. But on the very same day after he left Mumbai and reached Delhi enroute Munich, Ravi Pujari allegedly called him up on his mobile and threatened to eliminate him if he ever entered Mumbai again, his petition in the apex court stated.

According to Sanjay he had already lodged a complained with the special cell of the Delhi police about the threat. Hence he wanted the case to be transferred to Delhi. Neither, Sanjay nor his counsels were willing to speak on the subject saying the matter was sub-judice.
