NEW DELHI: The Delhi government has issued a show-cause notice to Hyatt Regency hotel in view of a 2013 incident when a youth was paralyzed after falling from the sixth floor to the fourth floor.

However, it informed the Delhi high court on Tuesday that in view of the case pending before the HC, it will await the court's decision.

Filed through standing counsel Zubeda Begum, the government maintained that it renewed Hyatt's lodging licence as it had "fulfilled" the mandatory requirements of having a health trade license (HTL) as well as a no objection certificate (NOC) from the fire department.

The government's stand came in light of notice issued by Delhi Police on September 12 asking Hyatt why its lodging licence must not be revoked for alleged violations. Justice Vibhu Bakhru, after taking note of the submissions listed the matter for final disposal on October 27.

HC is hearing a plea filed by the sister of the injured man Gaurav Rishi who suffered serious injuries on the night of October 16, 2013 when he fell from the hotel's sixth floor to the fourth floor and was in a coma for several months.

Meanwhile, Hyatt hotel also filed its response, denying the allegations leveled against it by Rishi's family as well opposing the plea as not being maintainable. It questioned the grounds that were raised in the petition and denied its license had expired. The hotel told HC that licenses relating to fire and safety were renewed from time to time. and there is no truth inthe allegations that the hotel's safety systems were not in place.Earlier this month, HC had called for a fresh status report on whether any action has been taken to address deficiencies pointed out by Delhi Police in the functioning of Hyatt. The report shall also indicate the status of the licence of the hotel, the court had said, while observing that it is a "serious issue" which needs to be "followed up" by the authorities as "deficiencies pointed out involves an issue at large".

Rishi's sister, in her petition, had accused the hotel of violating licence conditions. She had sought directions prohibiting authorities from renewing the NOCs or licenses granted to the hotel till the alleged violations had been probed.
