Hearing of contempt notice to Anil Ambani adjourned

New Delhi, February 12

The Supreme Court on Tuesday adjourned for Wednesday the hearing on a contempt notice issued to Reliance Communication Limited (RCom) Chairman Anil Dhirubhai Ambani and others on a plea filed by Ericsson India for allegedly not clearing its dues of Rs 550 crore.

Ambani, Reliance Telecom Limited Chairman Satish Seth and Reliance Infratel Limited Chairperson Chhaya Virani appeared before a bench of Justices RF Nariman and Vineet Saran in pursuance to the contempt notice issued against them.

The bench said it would continue hearing the contempt plea on Wednesday due to paucity of time and assembling of a special bench in the post-lunch session.

During the brief hearing, senior advocate Dushyant Dave, appearing for Ericsson India, said there was gross violation of the apex court’s two earlier orders and they (RCom) had not paid any outstanding dues.

The bench asked the three alleged contemnors to remain present in court on Wednesday. PTI
