No relief to Uphaar theatre owner Gopal Ansal as the Supreme Court asked him to surrender today to undergo one-year sentence.

Earlier on March 9, SC dismissed Ansal's plea and asked him to surrender by March 20. Ansal had filed an application in Supreme Court seeking to extend the time to surrender for serving the one-year jail term. But, SC dismissed his plea to let him off with undergone sentence in parity with elder brother Sushil Ansal.

The Supreme Court had earlier refused to extend the deadline for Gopal's surrender in the 1997 tragedy.

Meanwhile, Gopal Ansal -- who has to serve seven months in jail -- has now appealed to the President for relief.

A huge fire broke out at the Uphaar cinema hall when Hindi movie "Border" was being screened on June 13, 1997. Trapped inside, 59 persons died of asphyxia and over 100 were injured in a stampede.
