Faced with adverse online publicity, Nirmaljit Singh Narula alias Nirmal Baba has moved the Delhi high court against a website and an unknown hubber to protect his reputation.
Justice Manmohan Singh has restrained www.hubpages.com and the hubber — Indijobs — as well as their agents, partners, associates, servants, employees, representatives, successors, attorneys and assigns from selling, leasing, licensing, writing, publishing, hosting, advertising, any content, existing or future, that is defamatory about Nirmal Baba written by anybody till May 5 — the next date of hearing in the case.
“In failure to do so, the directions are issued to defendants No. 5 (registrar of the domain www.hubpages.com) to block the website hubpages.com from public access within India,” justice Singh said.
The court also asked the site to reveal the identity and contact details and of the hubber - author of the article against Nirmal Baba.
Nirmal baba in his civil suit alleged that Indijobs “deliberately” wrote defamatory articles about him with malafide intention of causing serious damage to his reputation.
