High Court sends Rajpal Yadav to jail

Rajpal-yadav-1High Court also puts Rajpal Yadav's wife in judicial custody till rising of the court in the recovery suit.

The Delhi High Court today sent Bollywood actor Rajpal Yadav to 10 days in jail for misleading the court in a recovery suit filed against him and his wife by a businessman here.

The court also detained his wife Radha Yadav, who was carrying their infant, till the rising of the court.

Yadav and his wife, along with their child, appeared before Justice S Muralidhar, who had directed them to appear in-person as they had failed to appear in the court earlier.

The court, which was hearing the suit, took exception to the affidavit filed by Yadav yesterday, which was allegedly falsely prepared and contained forged signatures of his wife.

Annoyed over the attempt of the actor, the court ordered that he be sent to 10 days in jail and also directed that his wife be kept in the office of the Registrar General till

rising of the court.

"10 days simple imprisonment for Yadav. As far as respondent number 3 (Yadav's wife) is concerned, the court is taking a lenient view as she has a child with her. She will be kept in the room of Registrar General till closing of the office (today)," Justice Murlidhar said.

Rajpal and Radha have been engaged in a legal battle after Delhi-based businessman, M G Agarwal (owner of Murli Projects), filed a case against them in the High Court for failing to repay a loan of Rs five crore which the actor had taken in 2010 to make his Hindi debut directional film 'Ata Pata Laapata'.
