Karanjawala & Co., Advocates, successfully obtained temporary injunction from the High Court of Delhi on behalf of its client St. Xaviers Trust against publication and sale of a book authored by Ms. Leena Dhankhar, journalist, published by Juggernaut Publications and being sold on e-commerce websites Amazon and Flipkart.

The injunction was obtained on the contention that the book was defamatory and contrary to the orders of the Ld. Additional Sessions Judge, Gurugram, who had directed the names of the school, victim and accused be kept private to ensure confidentiality.

The Hon'ble High Court of Delhi concurred with the view presented before it and directed/injuncted the publishers from publishing, packaging, releasing, offering for sale, selling & displaying on their website the said book and further directed/injuncted online e-commerce websites Amazon and Flipkart from accepting any purchase orders and executing the pending orders.

The matter was led by Sh. Rajeev K. Virmani, Sr. Advocate and handled by Mr. Sandeep Kapur - Sr. Partner, Ms. Meghna Mishra - Partner alongwith Mr. Yashvardhan Bandi, MS. Apoorva Pandey, Mr. Gudipati G. Kashyap, and MS. Deveshi Madan, Advocates
