Former Indian Cricket Captain MS Dhoni Appears Caught in a Legal Trouble

MS Dhoni’s counsel argued against the maintainability of the plea, citing an earlier judgment and questioning the territorial jurisdiction of the court. The matter was subsequently listed for further hearing on April 3.

Former Indian cricket captain MS Dhoni made a court appearance on Monday at the Delhi High Court to contest a defamation plea filed against him by his two former business partners, Mihir Diwakar and his wife Soumya Das. Dhoni submitted that the defamation plea against him was not maintainable, prompting the high court to decline any interim orders against him and various media houses and social media platforms accused of spreading allegedly false defamatory content.

The plaintiffs sought a permanent injunction and damages against Dhoni, several social media platforms, and media houses, requesting the court to restrain them from making, publishing, or circulating any defamatory statements against them. The court instructed the plaintiffs’ counsel to provide a complete set of documents to Dhoni’s legal team within three days.

During the proceedings, Dhoni’s counsel argued against the maintainability of the plea, citing an earlier judgment and questioning the territorial jurisdiction of the court. The matter was subsequently listed for further hearing on April 3.

Previously, the high court had directed its registry to inform Dhoni about the defamation plea filed against him by his former business partners. The plaintiffs’ counsel had alleged that a press conference was held on Dhoni’s behalf, where accusations were made against them.

The court’s decision to refrain from passing interim orders and to schedule further hearings indicates that the case is poised to undergo thorough legal scrutiny in the coming months.
