Indore, Sep 14 (UNI) The District Court today stayed an arrest warrant issued last month by a lower court against Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra's father Ashok Chopra.
Judicial Magistrate V S Mubel issued the warrant while acting on a complaint by Priyanka's former private secretary Prakash Jaju. The warrant was stayed by Special Judge M M Mamtani. The case would be argued on September 24.
Mr Jaju alleged that Ashok issued a threat via underworld don Chhota Shakeel. Priyanka was earlier exonerated by the Madhya Pradesh High Court's Indore bench.
Ashok's Counsel Chandrashekhar Raikwar argued that his client was undergoing cancer treatment in America and therefore the case should be dismissed on humanitarian grounds.
The actress and Mr Jaju are having a monetary dispute. Priyanka recently submitted a caveat plea in the Supreme Court.
