Comedian Rajpal Yadav Now In Judicial Custody!
Comedian Rajpal Yadav has got into legal trouble over an old issue. M G Agarwal, a Delhi-based businessman and the owner of Murali Projects, had earlier filed a recovery suit against Yadav and his wife for failing to compensate a loan of Rs five crore which the actor had taken in 2010 to make his directorial debut film ‘Ata Pata Laapata’ in 2012. However, the Supreme Court rejected Yadav’s petition and directed him to surrender for not paying money to a businessman despite giving repeated undertakings.
Yadav was sent to 10 day judicial custody by the Delhi High Court for filing a false affidavit. The actor, who had earlier spent four days in judicial custody, will now have to serve the remaining six-day term at the Tihar Jail.
Yadav had spent four days in jail from December 3, 2013 till December 6, 2013 after which a division bench of the High Court had suspended the sentence on his appeal. The single judge bench, which was hearing the recovery suit, had taken exception to the affidavit filed by Yadav in December, 2013, which was allegedly falsely prepared and contained forged signatures of his wife.
