The battle for the title 'Khan Chacha', synonymous with mouth-watering rolls and kebabs sold from an outlet in Khan Market's middle lane, has reached the Delhi High Court.
The court on Thursday granted relief to Haji Banda Hassan carrying out business since 1972 by temporarily restraining his landlord Rajeev Goel from running another outlet with the same name in Satya Niketan in South Delhi.
Justice Rajiv Shakdher has refrained Goel from operating his new outlet in the name of 'Khan Chacha' till January 25, the next date of hearing.
"The name Khan Chacha is associated with us and the defendants (Goel) is illegally using it," Hassan argued.
"I am of the opinion that plaintiff has been able to make out presently a prima-facie case. The defendants are injuncted from using the name 'Khan Chacha' for running their business from Satya Niketan or from any other restaurant till January 25, 2010", said the judge.
The dispute began earlier this month when Goel opened a restaurant in the same name after directing the tenants to vacate the area and shut the restaurant.
