A Delhi court on Friday issued summons against real estate barons Sushil and Gopal Ansal besides four others for allegedly tampering with evidence in the Uphaar fire tragedy case.
Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate A K Kuhar sought presence of Ansal brothers and four others -- P P Batra, Har Swaroop, Anoop Singh and Dharamvir Malhotra -- on May 2.
A case was registered against them in the Tilak Marg police station for alleged tampering of evidence in the posh south Delhi cinema theatre, which claimed 59 lives. The case was registered on the directions of the Delhi High Court on May 5, 2006.
Sushil and Gopal, now out on bail, along with 10 others were convicted by a trial court here on November 20 last year for their complicity in the Uphaar theatre fire case in which 59 cine-goers lost their lives during the screening of a film on June 13, 1997.
