A district court on Thursday dismissed the bail application of Gaurav Aneja, the owner of the illegal paying guest facility in Sector 32 where three girls were killed and two were injured after a fire had broken out.

The tragedy struck on February 23. Aneja had rented the place out to Nitish Bansal, who in alliance with Nitish Popli, was running a PG since August 2018 without registering it with the UT estate office.
