A Delhi court has summoned the Deputy Commissioner (South) on an application filed by him against noted socialite Bina Ramani, a witness in Jessica Lall murder case, for making false affirmations in an affidavit seven years ago.

Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Kamini Lau directed the DC (South) to appear in person on June 13 along with relevant material to explain why the present complaint was filed after such delay.

The court also asked the DC (South) to place on record reasons why such a complaint was not made at the time by the Hauz Khaz Sub Divisional Magistrate before whom the false declaration was allegedly made in 1999.

The orders were passed on a complaint filed against Ramani seeking registration of an FIR against her for having made false statements in an affidavit submitted before the SDM, a fact that was brought to the attention of the Commissioner of Police in a letter dated May 16, 2006.

It was erroneously reported on Monday that the court had summoned the Deputy Commissioner of Delhi Police on an application filed by him against Bina Ramani, a witness in Jessica Lall murder case, for making false affirmations in an affidavit seven years ago.
