Mumbai, Dec 5 – The Bombay High Court has issued a notice to actress Sherlyn Chopra on a petition filed by Big Boss fame model Rakhi Sawant seeking quashing of a FIR filed against her by Chopra alleging defamation and outraging of modesty.

In her petition, Sawant has alleged that the fellow model filed the case against her out of revenge.

“The false accusations and defamatory statements made by the complainant not only cause personal distress but also ruin Sawant’s once successful career. It is evident that the complainant holds a grudge and filed the false FIR as an act of revenge,” the petition read.

On October 31, 2022, Amboli police station registered an offence against Sawant alleging that she showed some videos of the complainant and made defamatory statements. It was further alleged that the video, shown to the media, was sexually explicit.

FIR was registered under Sections 354(A) (outraging modesty of a woman), 500 (defamation), 504 (criminal intimidation), 509 (intent of provoking breach) and 34 (common intention) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) along with Section 67(A) of the Information and Technology Act (IT Act).
