Top court bench led by CJI Ranjan Gogoi said it will hear the contempt petition against former Ranbaxy owners on April 11.
New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Friday warned Ranbaxy promoters Malvinder and Shivinder Singh that if they failed to pay the dues to the Japanese firm they could go to jail.
The top court bench led by Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi said it will hear the contempt petition against former Ranbaxy owners on April 11.
“We will go ahead with contempt proceedings and send ex-Ranbaxy promoters to jail if there is order violation,” said Gogoi.
The court was dissatisfied over replies of ex-Ranbaxy promoters on payment of Rs 4,000 crore arbitral award amounts to Japanese firm Daiichi Sankyo.
