"It will not be proper. We have already passed the order," a three-judge bench headed by Justice A R Dave said when senior advocate Harish Salve, who has been representing CBI in this case, sought 15 minutes time to argue some of the points in the matter.

"I have been doing this case pro-bono since 2000. Please grant us 15 minutes time from 3.45 pm to 4 pm today...If the court is not convinced, then throw us out," Salve cited. The bench, also comprising Justices Kurian Joseph and Adarsh Kumar Goel, did not allow the plea and asked the probe agency to file a review petition with all the points which have been left out.

Ansal brothers yesterday escaped being jailed in the 18-year-old gruesome Uphaar Cinema fire tragedy in which 59 people died with the Supreme Court asking them to pay a fine of Rs 30 crore each  and restricting their jail term to the period already undergone by them. While Sushil had spent over five months in prison, Gopal was in jail for over four months immediately after the tragedy.
