Court dismisses Salman Khan’s plea for interim order in defamation case against neighbor – India Times Hindi News

The Mumbai City Civil Court on Friday refused to pass any interim stay order in favor of actor Salman Khan, who has sued a neighbor for alleged defamation.

The Bollywood superstar has filed a civil suit alleging that Ketan Kakkar, who owns a plot of land near the actor’s farmhouse in Panvel near Mumbai, defamed him during an interview with a YouTube channel.

Judge Anil H Laddad directed Kakkar to file his reply and posted the matter for further hearing on January 21.

DSK Legal’s lawyers representing Khan sought an interim injunction (order) restraining Kakkar from making any further defamatory statements during the pendency of the trial.

But Kakkar’s lawyers Abha Singh and Aditya Pratap opposed the prayer saying that they got the case papers only on Thursday evening and the entire trial could not be seen.

Advocate Singh also submitted that there was no urgency and if Khan had waited for a month to file the suit, Kakkar should have got some time to file a reply.

After this, Judge Ladakh adjourned the hearing.

Khan, who lives in Mumbai’s suburban Bandra, has a farmhouse in Panvel in neighboring Raigad district.

Kakkar, who hails from Mumbai, has a plot on a hillock next to Khan’s farmhouse.

According to Khan’s lawsuit, Kakkar made derogatory remarks against the actor while talking to a YouTuber. Two other people who participated in the show have also been named as respondents.

Khan has also implicated social media sites such as YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and search engine giant Google in the lawsuit and demanded that they be directed to block and remove “derogatory content” from their websites.

Khan wants a standing order restraining Kakkar from posting or publishing derogatory material about the actor or his farmhouse.
