Payal Ghosh has finally tendered an unconditional apology to Richa Chadha and has agreed to withdraw all the defamatory and derogatory statements against her. The Bombay High Court, on Wednesday, has accepted Payal’s apology in the form of consent terms and disposed of the suit against her.
“Richa Chadha is elated with the outcome of the Case and is thankful to the Hon’ble Bombay High Court. The Bombay high court has accepted the consent terms as an undertaking to the Hon’ble Court in the Suit with Payal Ghosh giving Richa Chadha an unconditional apology and withdrawal of all statements defamatory posts also including videos and also agreeing not to state, make, publish, republish any defamatory, insulting, humiliating statements against Richa Chadda related to the subject matter of the Suit and/or any issue, dispute, complaint, suit, action, controversy, nefarious activity and/or criminal activity between Payal Ghosh and any person/party,” Richa’s team said in a statement.
However, the suit against Kamaal R Khan aka KRK and the news channel ABN Telugu TV will continue. “The case with Kamaal R Khan continues while his statement is already recorded by the Hon’ble Court that he has no intention of repeating his tweets and that he will not make any similar remarks or the the statement made by Payal Ghosh on Twitter or any other media, while the news channel has agreed to withdraw its videos from all its platforms and has agreed not to republish them along with agreeing for an injunction against them. A John Doe/Ashok Kumar order has also been granted to withdraw with immediate effect from their respective publications all defamatory statements, videos, tweets and/or defamatory statements of Payal Ghosh, the news channel and KRK. The suit for damages against The news channel and KRK continues,” read the statement.
Last week, Richa Chadha had filed a defamation suit against Payal Ghosh and others for tarnishing her reputation and subjecting her to immense humiliation and harsh public scrutiny. Last month, Payal had claimed that Kashyap tried to molest her in the past. She said in order to convince her, Anurag said that “all the actresses he has worked with are just a call away” — indicating that these actresses, including Richa, have provided sexual favours to Kashyap.
