High Court gives Indrajit Lankesh reprieve

Staff Reporter

BANGALORE: Film-maker Indrajit Lankesh won a reprieve from the Karnataka High Court on Wednesday when it quashed the investigation against him by the Central Crime Branch (CCB) of the Bangalore city police. Justice Subash B.Adi passed the order on a petition by Mr. Lankesh urging the court to quash the proceedings initiated against him by the CCB following a complaint by Ashok Kheny, film producer and promoter of the Bangalore-Mysore Infrastructure Corridor (BMIC) project.

Mr. Lankesh said Mr. Kheny had approached him for the re-make of the Hindi movie, Shaadi Ke Side Effects.

He said he lodged a complaint against Mr. Kheny when two cheques for Rs. 2 crore each bounced. He claimed that Mr. Kheny had deliberately filed a case against him.

Justice Subash B. Adi allowed the petition and quashed the investigations being taken up by the CCB against Mr. Lankesh.
