Tight police security arranged
Delhi High Court, on March 8, directed City Government and Police Commissioner to provide adequate security to the capital's cinema halls where the controversial film Chori Chori Chupke Chupke will be released tomorrow.
Justice Manmohan Sarin gave the direction on a petition by a distributor of the film, apprehending disturbance during the screening of the movie. The film is financed by Bharat Shah and produced by Nazim Hassan Razvi who allegedly have links with the underwold.
Issuing show cause notices to the Delhi Government and City police Commissioner on the petition by Manpreet Singh Chadha, proprietor of Ginni Arts, the court said, "The Delhi Government and Police Commissioner will take steps to ensure that law and order is maintained and no obstruction is caused for screening the film unless there is a legal provision for the same."
Chadha's counsel Rajiv Bansal claimed that his client had received threats from certain religious, political and fundamentalist organisations asking him not to exhibit the film in New Delhi and Uttar Pradesh.
Bansal said Chadha had purchased the film's distribution rights for New Delhi and UP for Rs 1.75 crore of which Rs 50 lakh had already been paid to Rizvi's company MR Films.
The court made it clear to the authorities that the film has to be exhibited under the control of a receiver appointed by a Mumbai Special Court, which was seized of the matter.
The Mumbai Special court had on February 12 allowed the release of the film after appointing a receiver, who was given the right to sell, release and distribute the film.
