A Bench, comprising Justices S. Rajendra Babu and G.P. Mathur, also issued notice to the Delhi Fire Service and the Association of Victims of Uphaar Tragedy (AVUT) and directed that the petition be tagged along with the appeals filed by the Delhi police and the Municipal Corporation of Delhi. both of which were asked by the High Court to pay damages.
The Bench, however, disposed of another appeal filed by the company, Ansals, challenging the High Court order dated September 12, for release of the cinema hall (which had been sealed by the prosecuting agency) after completion of defence evidence.
It wanted the impugned order to be modified to the extent that the trial judge might visit the theatre not after the defence evidence but after the closure of the prosecution evidence and prior to the recording of Sec. 313 Cr.P.C. statements.
