Shilpa Shetty and Raj Kundra’s lawyers have filed a defamation suit against Sherlyn Chopra in the amount of Rs 50 crore. Sherlyn Chopra filed a FIR against the businessman at Juhu Police Station, prompting Raj and Shilpa’s lawyers to take action. Sherlyn had accused Raj and Shilpa of sexual harassment and criminal intimidation in her complaint. Despite the couple’s lawyers’ warnings, she had also organised a news conference.
The couple has claimed that the charges against them are ‘concocted, fraudulent, bogus, frivolous, unsubstantiated, and without any evidence,’ according to a notice delivered by Raj and Shilpa’s lawyers, according to Pinkvilla. Raj and Shilpa’s lawyers stated in the notice that Sherlyn fabricated the allegations ‘with an ulterior goal to slander and extort money.’ Shilpa Shetty is also not involved in the JL Stream App’s day-to-day operations, according to the notice. It goes on to say, “It is nothing but an audacious attempt, by Ms. Sherlyn to drag Ms. Shilpa Shetty’s name to create unwanted controversy and gain media attention.”
Further, the notice reads, “The allegations are nothing but an afterthought, wherein Ms. Sherlyn Chopra, is arraigned as an Accused, in C.R. No. 02/2020, Nodal Cyber Police Station. That, Ms. Sherlyn Chopra, has committed offences u/s 499, 550, 389 and 195(A), of Indian Penal Code, 1860. That, we have complete faith in the Indian Judiciary, and we would be initiating civil/criminal proceedings against Ms. Sherlyn Chopra before the competent court of Law, for Justice. We have put a defamation of 50 cr against Sherlyn Chopra.”
