Central earlier filed suit against the insurer for failing to pay for the damage. Deves claimed that it was an act of terrorism which was not included in the Central insurance policy.

The court ruled that the protest during which the department store was burnt was neither a political threat nor a demonstration meant to create fear among the public.
