Non Bailable Warrant issued against Sanjay Dutt over alleged threats to Noorani
A Non Bailable Warrant was issued on Saturday against Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt over alleged threats to movie producer Shakil Noorani, said reports.
Dutt and Noorani have a long pending dispute over a cheating case filed against the former by the movie producer.
In 2013, an Andheri Metropolitan court had issued the warrant against Dutt after Noorani's complaint. Dutt was later granted bail.
The film maker had then alleged that the actor had failed to complete his movie "Jaan Ki Baazi" in 2002 despite taking the signing amount of Rs. 50 lakh.
Indian Motion Pictures Producers Association, acting on Noorani's complaint, had directed Dutt to pay up Rs.2 crore for losses incurred.
According to reports, Noorani then approached the Bombay High Court seeking to execute an order passed by IMPPA against Dutt.
Noorani later also reportedly claimed that he started getting threat calls which were traced to Dubai and Karachi. Dutt's lawyers, however, rubbished such claims.
