New Delhi : Delhi High Court on Wednesday ordered that revision petitions filed before a trial court by real estate barons Sushil and Gopal Ansal and two others, challenging the framing of charges against them in a Uphaar fire tragedy related case of tampering with evidence, would be transferred before it.
A bench of Justice Siddharth Mridul allowed the plea filed by Delhi Police in which it had sought transfer of revision petitions pending before a sessions court. “The present transfer is warranted in order to protect and uphold dignity and majesty of judicial system and to ensure faith of the citizens in courts of law,” the bench said while transferring the petitions under section 407 (power of High Court to transfer cases and appeals) of the CrPC.
The bench said that these revision petitions would be transferred to the high court and the hearing would start from March 31 on a day-to-day basis. The order was passed after all the parties gave their consent for transfer of petitions before the High Court.
