Central Delhi High Court directs Jairam Ramesh, two others to delete tweets on illegal bar row

New Delhi, 29/6: The Delhi High Court on Friday issued summons to Congress leaders Jairam Ramesh, Pawan Khera and Netta D’ Souza, and also directed them to remove tweets on allegations against Union Minister Smriti Irani and her daughter related to a recent bar controversy.



The case is related to the political controversy surrounding Silly Souls Cafe and Bar, allegedly operated by Union Minister Smriti Irani’s daughter Zoish Irani in Goa’s Assagao.


“I am of the prima facie view that slanderous allegations were made against the plaintiff without verifying actual facts. Grave injury has been caused to the reputation of the plaintiff in view of the tweets and retweets carried out due to the press conference of the defendants. Plaintiff has made out prima facie case and balance of convenience lies in favour of the plaintiff and against the defendants,” Justice Mini Pushkarna remarked.
