New Delhi: The Delhi High Court today dismissed the plea of former IPS officer Amod Kanth against the 2010 trial court order summoning him for allowing extra seats in Uphaar cinema hall where 59 movie-watchers died in a blaze in 1997.





Justice P K Bhasin dismissed Kanth's argument that the former IPS officer cannot be tried for allegedly allowing extra seats in Uphaar cinema as “sanction to prosecute” him was not procured.
