HC stays case against Rajesh Khanna family

The Bombay High Court Monday ordered a temporary stay on proceedings in a case of domestic violence filed by Anita Advani against the family of the late Rajesh Khanna.

Advani claims she was Khanna's live-in partner.

The proceedings in a magistrate court have been stayed till December 17 when the HC will hear the case.

Khanna's wife Dimple Kapadia and son-in-law Akshay Kumar have filed a petition to quash the proceedings.

The court asked the petitioners to appear before the magistrate Tuesday and state if they are willing to resolve the dispute through mediation.

In a complaint filed on November 8, Advani has accused Kapadia and Kumar of evicting her from Khanna's Aashirwad bungalow in Mumbai.
