Priyanka Chopra approaches SC on row with ex-secretary

NEW DELHI: Apprehending that her former private secretary P Jaju might appeal against her acquittal in the criminal intimidation case, Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra has urged the Supreme Court not to pass any orders without hearing her.

The actress made the plea in a caveat application filed through counsel P Narasimhan, but kept it under wraps for inexplicable reasons.

Though no official information was coming forth from the actress' side, it was stated that the actress had filed the caveat against the special leave petition (SLP) sought to be filed by Jaju against her acquittal by the Madhya Pradesh High Court.

An Indore Bench of the High Court had recently acquitted the actress of the criminal intimidation charges levelled against her by Jaju, who alleged that Priyanka and her father Ashok Chopra, got him threatened with dire consequences through underworld don Chhota Shakeel over a financial dispute.

The dispute related to a payment of Rs 1.37 crore which Jaju claimed the actress owed to him; a figure disputed by Priyanka.

Following her acquittal by the High Court, Jaju decided to file an SLP in the apex court, prompting the actress to file a caveat.

Speaking to PTI, Narasimhan admitted that the caveat has been filed but expressed inability to give any details on the matter.

Her Supreme Court counsel Sudarsan Rajan also declined to give any information on the issue on the ground that he was under strict instructions not to speak to the media on the issue.
