India Today moves court to restrain Radia from filing suit
NEW DELHI English weekly India Today’s publisher has moved the Delhi High Court to restrain corporate lobbyist Niira Radia from initiating any legal action against it in London for an alleged defamatory article published in the magazine’s UK edition last year.

In its petition, Living Media India Ltd sought the court to “pass a decree of permanent injunction in favour of the company against defendant (Radia) from filing or prosecuting any suit or other proceedings relating to any publication made by the plaintiff (company) on her or any other corporate entity that she owns or controls, in any court outside the territory of India.

The petition was filed through counsel Anup Bhambani. Radia, who owned PR firm Vaishnavi Corporate Communication, had filed a defamatory suit against the media house before the High Court of Justice in London.

The magazine had reproduced in May 2010 the transcripts of some of the telephone conversations of Radia with senior journalists, politicians, and corporate houses. Counsel Bhambani submitted that Radia had filed two civil suits seeking injunction and damages which are pending before the court and she should not be allowed to initiate further legal action against the magazine in any court out side the country.
