Mumbai: The Bombay high court stayed the proceedings before a magistrate court till March 27 in a 2016 criminal defamation case filed by Nusli Wadia against Ratan Tata and some other directors of Tata Sons.

A single bench of Justice Bhatkar will now hear a petition filed by Tata and other directors of Tata Sons, seeking quashing of the defamation case against them on March 27.

 

Justice Bhatkar directed the magistrate's court to refrain from proceeding with the hearing on the defamation case until then. In December 2018, the magistrate court had issued notices to Ratan Tata and other directors of Tata Sons in the criminal defamation case filed by Wadia and posted the matter for further hearing on March 27, 2019.

Wadia had filed the case in 2016 after he was voted out of the boards of some Tata Group companies. Wadia had claimed that Tata and the others had made defamatory statements against him after they removed Cyrus Mistry on October 24, 2016, as the group chairman of Tata Sons.

Wadia was on the boards as an independent director of group companies such as Indian Hotels Company. He said that he approached the magistrate’s court, as he was not satisfied with explanation the respondents (Tata and others) had given him following his letters to them.
