Security specialists said Sharma crossed the closed door and tried to send Cook "flowers and a bottle of champagne."

The Indian man had even gone ahead to say that the Apple CEO is apparently a criminal and they will try to kill him.

In a statement issued to CNET, Apple security specialist William Burns said: "Mr. Sharma's continuous and increasingly threatening conduct is causing me and other Apple employees significant emotional distress and gives me grave concern for our personal safety."

The court recently ordered Sharma to stay away from Cook, Cook's private homes, executive teams, and Apple's Cupertino headquarters campus. Interim restraining order to be terminated on 3 March, the day of the hearing.
