Real estate barons Sushil and Gopal Ansal on Monday assured the apex court that they will not leave India till it commences hearing on the plea of the victims' association of the 1997 Uphaar fire tragedy
seeking review of its 2015 verdict.

The next hearing in this case has been set for December 14.

The Supreme Court had last year refused to entertain a plea filed against the Delhi High Court order quashing criminal proceeding lodged for allegedly threatening Association of Victims of Uphaar Tragedy (AVUT) chairperson.

Fifty-nine people, trapped in the balcony of the theatre in South Delhi, had died of asphyxia following the fire and over 100 were injured in the subsequent stampede on June 13, 1997 during the
screening of Bollywood film 'Border'.
