Ansal seeks clubbing of trial in 2 criminal cases

delhi Updated: Feb 02, 2013 23:48 IST

Real estate tycoon Gopal Ansal, one of the accused in the 1997 Uphaar fire tragedy case, appealed in a Delhi court on Saturday seeking clubbing of two other pending criminal cases against him.

Ansal, in an application filed before additional chief metropolitan magistrate Gautam Manan, has sought joint trials in two separate FIRs lodged, in 2006 and 2007, for allegedly fudging judicial records of the Uphaar case and passing lewd remarks against Neelam Krishnamurthy, one of the complainants in the case, respectively.

The court, which was to hear arguments on charges against Ansal and others in the evidence tampering case, has now posted the plea for hearing on February 11. Public prosecutor Rajeev Mohan opposed the plea saying that such "unnecessary applications" hamper proceedings in court.
