New Delhi, Feb 25 (UNI) The Supreme Court today dismissed a petition against Yuvraj Singh by Perfect Talent Management Ltd seeking directions not to sign contract with any other advertisment company without taking the petitioner into confidence.
A bench comprising Justices H K Sema and Markandey Katju refused to entertain the petition of the company which has contended that as per the agreement Yuvraj Singh is legally bound to reveal the offer made to him by any other company for ad contract so that a petitioner company can try to match the offer.
The apex court, however, held the view that such conditions cannot be imposed as it is violative of Article19(1)(g)of the Constitution which grants freedom to an Indian citizen to do any business or profession in any part of the country.
The counsel for the company felt aggrieved because Yuvraj Singh had been signing new ad contracts without giving any prior information to the petitioner company.
Perfect Talent Management Ltd had come in appeal against the Bombay High Court judgement which dismissed the petition of the company there, seeking the same relief.
The company had also demanded damages from the cricketer for the alleged violation of the term of the contract.
