SC stays FIRs against TMKOC actress Munmun Dutta regarding SC/ST remarks


New Delhi, Jun 18 (ILNS) The Supreme Court today stayed the FIRs registered against Tarak Mehta Ka Ulta Chashma actress Munmun Dutta for her alleged SC/ST remarks in a video going viral on social media under the Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities) Act.

A Division Bench of Justice Hemant Gupta and Justice V Ramasubramnian issued notice in a plea filed by Dutta.

The petition has been filed by Dutta, seeking stay on the FIRs registered against her, while clubbing and consolidating the FIRs registered in various states.

Senior Advocate Puneet Bali, appearing for Dutta, submitted that the incident has taken place as Dutta is Bengali and was unaware of the real meaning of the word.

Whereas, the Bench contended, “That is not true. You may not be informed. Everyone knows the meaning. Same word is used in Bangla.”

However, Mr Bali stated, “She is agreeing that she said it, but the context was different. I can show the video. There is only one relief that this Court can grant me and the High Court cannot. Similar reliefs have been granted in matters of Amish Patel etc.”

The Bench, while issuing a notice in the petition, directed a stay on five FIRs registered against her in different states. The court has listed the matter after six weeks.
