Court stays arrest of Sunny Deol
The Patna High Court Monday stayed for two months the arrest of Bollywood star Sunny Deol in connection with a case of cheating after he deposited Rs.1.3 million with it for payment to the complainant.
The court ordered that no action be initiated against Deol, who is also director of Vijeta Film Company, in the interim period of two months before the matter came up for hearing again.
Patna film distributor Arvind Kumar had alleged Deol's company had not returned Rs.2 million that it had taken in lieu of distribution rights of a film titled "Gandhi" that had not been completed for various reasons.
Kumar claimed Deol had not returned the payment despite several reminders.
Deol's lawyer informed the high court Monday that negotiations were going on with Kumar for the payment of the remaining Rs.700,000.
Kumar had filed a police complaint on the direction of a district court in Vaishali and a Patna court issued a non-bailable warrant against Deol May 26.
Deol had then appealed against the Vaishali court's decision, but it rejected his plea June 22, saying there was "substantial evidence" against him.
A Bihar Police team had gone to Mumbai last month to arrest Deol in connection with the case. The star was then reportedly out of India on some personal work and staff at his office in Mumbai claimed they did not know when he would return.
