Delhi HC upholds evidence tampering charge against Ansals

New Delhi: The Delhi High Court on Friday upheld a trial court's order framing charges of tampering of evidence against real estate barons Sushil and Gopal Ansal in the Uphaar fire case.

A bench of Justice Siddharth Mridul held that there was adequate material before the trial court which justifies framing of charges against Ansals and others.

"The material gave rise to a strong suspicion that accused committed the offence for which charges were rightly framed," the bench said.
