The Delhi High Court has posted to April 18, further hearing on the plea for registration of an FIR against persons allegedly responsible for tampering with the records pertaining to the Uphaar cinema fire tragedy in which over 50 people were charred to death in 1998.
The matter was adjourned today by Justice RC Jain following a request from the respondents that they needed time to file their replies.
The petition was filed by the Uphaar Cinema Fire Victims Association seeking registration of FIR against the owners and two others for allegedly tampering with the judical records pertaining to the tragedy.
It was alleged that certain material which could establish the negligence of the management in the tragedy were deliberately defaced by a senior court staff member at the behest of the theatre owners.
