The Supreme Court recorded that Ratan Tata and others had no intention of defamation

Bombay Dyeing Chairman Nusli Wadia has withdrawn all defamation cases including compensation of Rs 3,000 crore against Ratan Tata and others from the Supreme Court. In this case, the Supreme Court recorded that Ratan Tata and others had no intention of defamation. After this Nusli Wadia withdrew the petition.

A bench headed by Chief Justice SA Bobde allowed Wadia to withdraw his petition in the apex court. In this context, the bench stated that, 'in view of Tata's statement that there was no intention to defame Wadia, which is in line with the High Court's outcome, allowed the petitioner to withdraw the existing petition and the pending suit for damages She goes.'



This is the case
The magistrate court issued a notice in December 2018 to Ratan Tata and others in a criminal defamation case filed by Nusli Wadia. The case was filed by Wadia in 2016 after he was dropped from the board of directors of Tata group companies. Tata and others then approached the High Court and requested them to dismiss the action initiated against them.

Court issued notice in December 2018

In December 2018, the Magistrate Court issued a notice against Ratan Tata and others in a criminal defamation case. Nusli Wadia filed a case in 2016 after he was removed from the company as a director. In response, Ratan Tata and others approached the High Court. Tata and eight other directors appealed to the High Court to quash the proceedings against him. Hearing this, a bench of Justices Ranjit More and Bharti Dangre quashed the case.

Defamation case is the result of corporate dispute
Senior advocate Abhishek Manu Singhvi, appearing for Ratan Tata, had told the court that the defamation case was actually the result of a corporate dispute. He said that the entire case has been filed without mind.

Nusli Wadia had told the court that the case is after the removal of Cyrus Mistry as Group Chairman on 24 October 2016. He told that he has been expelled from the company under the conspiracy.
