Sanjay Kapur, the estranged husband of Bollywood actor Karisma Kapoor, has moved the Supreme Court asking it to transfer a case pertaining to their matrimonial dispute from Mumbai to Delhi on the ground that underworld don Ravi Pujari has threatened to eliminate him.
Sanjay’s advocates told a bench headed by justice AK Sikri that the businessman had lodged a complaint with the Delhi Police’s special cell, a copy of which was also presented to the court.
Taking note of the serious allegations, the bench asked deputy commissioner of police (special cell) to submit a status report of its investigation on Sanjay’s complaint. It shall take up the matter after two weeks.
The couple’s matrimonial dispute is pending before a Bandra court in Mumbai. A resident of Gurgaon, Kapur wants his case to be heard by a Delhi court.
The couple had moved a mutual consent divorce petition in 2014. But the consent was withdrawn after differences cropped up over their children’s custody and financial settlement. In a fresh divorce petition filed by Kapur’s lawyers, Sanjay alleged that Karisma married him for money and later cheated on him.
Rubbishing allegations that Karisma has been trying to extract money from Sanjay Kapur who runs the leading auto components firm Sona Koyo Steering Systems, Randhir Kapoor told Hindustan Times , “Everyone knows our credentials. We are Kapoors. We don’t need to run after anyone’s money. We have been blessed with not only money, but our talent can support us for the rest of our lives.”
