[Uphaar Cinema Tragedy] Delhi Police opposes release of Ansal Brothers before Delhi High Court

Senior Advocate Abhishek Manu Singhvi, appearing on behalf of Gopal Ansal, argued that his client is not just a senior citizen, but a “super-senior citizen” and urged the Court to exercise its wide and liberal discretion to release him.

“There is an inevitable long pendency of appeals before the trial courts and even during trial in this case. My client is at the wrong end of the stick due to excessive media attention in this case, though I’m not blaming anybody here,” Singhvi submitted.

The Court was apprised of the fact that in the main case, the Ansal brothers were convicted and sentenced to a two-year jail term by the Supreme Court, which later released them subject to the payment of a ₹ 30 Crore fine on each of them.
