New Delhi, Apr 21: Indian cricket team captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni has filed a contempt of court plea in the Delhi High Court against mobile phone company Maxx mobilink.

This was after the company used his name and image despite court directions. The court has issued notice to Maxx CMD Ajjay Aggarwal.


In November 2014, Dhoni had obtained injunction orders against Maxx from the Delhi High court, banning the company from using his image or name on any product. Final orders in the case had been passed on January 22 this year.

The plea filed by Dhoni alleged that Maxx Mobilink has not paid dues of over Rs 10 crore, which was agreed upon for using his name on the company's products.

The fresh petition, through law firm C and C Associates, has claimed that Maxx had continued to use Dhoni's name and image, "in direct violation" of court orders.

Advocate Rajneesh Chopra, appearing on Dhoni's behalf said that the company had continued to use the cricketer's image and videos on their website and facebook page.

The contempt plea has sought seizure of all mobile handsets and other material using Dhoni's name and image.

It has also sought to withdraw all the advertisement campaigns and other such advertisements using the Dhoni's image.
