Jay Shah Defamation Case: Ahmedabad Court Vacates Interim injunction Against ‘The Wire’

An Ahmedabad court has vacated an ex parte order of October 12 placing absolute restraint on the publication of an article by the online news portal The Wire pertaining to the “dramatic increase” in some of the businesses of BJP president Amit Shah’s son, Jay Shah, but restrained the news website from indirectly or directly linking the article with Prime Minister Narendra Modi till the final disposal of the defamation suit filed by Jay Shah.

The Fourth Additional Civil Judge, Mirzapur, Ahmedabad, Badri Kamalkumar Dasondi, on December 23, had passed a 26-page order on an application filed by Mr. Jay Shah in connection with his 100-crore defamation suit with regard to for the article titled ‘The Golden Touch of Jay Amit Shah’ published by the news portal.

The article alleged that Mr. Jay Shah’s businesses saw an increase “since Narendra Modi became Prime Minister.” It said the “turnover of the company owned by Shah’s son increased 16,000 times over in the year following the election of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.”

The court restricted the portal or parties involved, represented by advocate Nitya Ramakrishnan, from indirectly or directly using the words “since Narendra Modi became Prime Minister/following the election of Narendra Modi as Prime Minister” on the basis of the article in any manner.
