Bombay HC restrains the release of former Raymond chairman's biography till March 13

The bench was hearing an application filed by Vijaypat Singhania, the former Raymond chairman seeking the transfer of a suit filed against him in Thane District Court by Raymond Limited


Bombay High Court has restrained former Raymond Group chairperson Vijaypat Singhania from publishing his autobiography till March 13 this year. The single bench presided over by Justice SK Shinde, in an interim order directed Singhania to not publish his autobiography, tentatively titled as 'The Incomplete Man', till March 13, the next date for the hearing.

The bench was hearing to an application filed by Singhania seeking the transfer of a suit filed against him in the Thane District Court by Raymond Ltd. The suit states that the company has sought an injunction against the former Raymond owner's autobiography on the basis that some parts of the book might be defamatory to the company.

Singhania and his son have been engaged in a legal battle for almost a year over a duplex apartment in the 36-storey building in South Mumbai.

Earlier, Singhania Sr. had claimed that his son had refused to honour an arbitration order which gave the apartment to the former.
