Uphaar plea dismissed

New Delhi, Dec. 2 (PTI): Delhi High Court today “dismissed as withdrawn” Ansals’ plea for permission to dispose of the Uphaar cinema building to pay compensation of Rs 12 crore to the 1997 fire tragedy victims.

A special bench of Justices S.K. Mahajan and Mukul Mudgal “dismissed” the Ansals’ petition after their counsel Rajiv Dhawan sought to withdraw it on the ground that a criminal bench of the court has declined to release the cinema hall till the expiry of two months after completion of defence evidence and the order has been upheld by the Supreme Court.

The Ansals claimed that they wanted to sell the cinema hall “as soon as”it is “released by the criminal court” to pay the Rs 12 crore compensation.
