Newton Case: Pre-summoning evidence hearing on July 19, 2018

As per reports, a Delhi court has posted hearing in the case filed by a CRPF sub-inspector Tamal Sanyal against the makers of the film ‘Newton’ for July 19, 2018 for pre-summoning evidence of the complainant.

As reported earlier here, Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) sub-Inspector Tamal Sanyal has filed the criminal complaint and civil defamation case in Karkardoooma court, Delhi against the makers of the movie ‘Newton’, for allegedly maligning the image, character and reputation of the force and sought direction to Manish Mundra, producer of the movie, and Shiladitya Bora, the CEO of production company Drishyam Films, to tender an unconditional public apology and compensate the complainant, and the CRPF.

Tamal Sanyal has sought deletion of scenes allegedly portraying the CRPF in a bad light and its re-release. He alleged that false and baseless imputations were made by the makers with the sole mala fide intention to injure and harm the image of a prime central paramilitary force of the country.

The ‘National Coordination Committee’, an umbrella organisation of multiple organizations of retired paramilitary personnel and officers, has also filed an application for impleadment in the case.
