A Supreme Court judge Monday recused himself from hearing a plea of real estate baron Gopal Ansal, convicted in the Uphaar fire tragedy case, seeking its nod to visit London and New York on a business trip.
The kin of Uphaar cinema tragedy victims Friday appealed to the government to bring in a new legislation which would expeditiously deal with "man made" disasters pending for more than five years.
In a major ruling, the Supreme Court on Wednesday upheld the conviction of Ansal brothers - Sushil and Gopal - in connection with 1997 Uphaar cinema hall fire tragedy.
The Supreme Court today posted for final disposal in
August of the appeals filed by the victims and real estate
tycoons Ansal brothers challenging the quantum of punishment.
