After Preity Zinta’s appeal, Bombay HC demands Shandar Amrohi’s bank details

On Preity’s plea, court tells Amrohi’s kin not to create third party rights on their properties

The Bombay High Court on Wednesday asked Shandar Amrohi’s legal heirs not to create third party rights on their properties and disclose details of the cash available in the bank accounts held by Shandar, the elder son of iconic filmmaker late Kamal Amrohi.

Justice SJ Kathawalla gave the directions to Shaheeda, widow of Shandar and his legal heirs and asked them to file affidavits in reply to a suit filed by actress Preity Zinta. Zinta has sought recovery of over Rs2 crore she had supposedly lent to Shandar to fight his legal battles and for other purposes. Shandar had passed away on August 22, 2011.

Zinta had moved the high court last month seeking to recover her principal loan amount of Rs2 crore and an interest of Rs80 lakh — calculated at an annual rate of 18 percent from the day after Shandar passed away.

Zinta’s counsels Sharam Jagtiani and Stuti Jain of ALMT Legal sought an interim direction from the court to the family members of Shandar asking them not to sell any property pending hearing of the suit. The defendants agreed that they would abide by the court direction until the next date, January 20.

According to the suit, Shandar was constantly at odds with his brother Tajdaar, sister Rukhsar and their families over property. Shandar, the suit claimed, then approached Zinta, seeking help to recover his property in shares, and she obliged.

It is also claimed in the suit that a few months after Amrohi’s death, Zinta orally requested the family to pay her dues, but no one paid any heed. She then sent a legal notice and later moved the high court.
