New Delhi ( Agency) ; The Supreme Court on Wednesday let off Ansal brothers in connection with their role in the Uphaar fire tragedy case, but asked them to pay a fine of Rs 60 crores. The ruling means that there will not be any jail term for Gopal and Sushil Ansal. The court has ordered the fine to be paid within three months. On June 13, 1997, 59 people were killed when the Uphaar Cinema exploded in flames during a movie, leading to a stampede. The cinema was engulfed in flames when an overheated generator exploded in the building's basement.  Most of the victims were trapped in the balcony and suffocated to death.
