Exactly a year after the hearing began, the Delhi High Court on Tuesday reserved its verdict on the appeals of three persons against a lower court judgment awarding them rigorous life imprisonment for abducting and killing Nitish Katara in 2002.

“Arguments concluded. Judgment reserved on appeals of convicted petitioners,” a bench of justices Gita Mittal and J R Midha, which had started hearing the appeals on April 16 last year, said.

The court was hearing five appeals filed by three convicts against their conviction and one each from the prosecution and Neelam Katara, mother of the victim, seeking death penalty for the persons held guilty by the lower court.

It decided to segregate the appeals filed by the victim’s mother and the prosecution from that of the convicts and fixed them for directions on May 24.
