A fresh evidence has been produced in Jodhpur court in Rajasthan by Vinod Nayar against his son Arun Nayar and Liz Hurley, thereby challenging the methodology of their marriage.

Complainant’s counsel, HM Saraswat said "we produced photos, which showed Arun Nayar wearing shoes during the marriage ceremony. It violated the Hindu rituals."

The court has fixed April 24 as the next date for recording the statements of the witnesses.

Saraswat said "Arun showed disrespect to the Hindu mythology which had hurt religious-minded people, the material on record shows that the marriage of Liz Hurley and Arun Nayar is an attack on the Hindu religion."

The counsel argued in the court that they got married at Sudeli Fort in Britain after adopting Christianity and started living together like husband and wife.

"There is no logic in getting married again as it is not permissible in Hindu rituals," he said. Saraswat further pleaded that it had adversely affected the Hindu sentiments and spirit.

The sanctity of the Hindu mythology had been maligned, he added. "The religion and rituals can not be used casually for entertainment or fun," the counsel said.

A complaint was filed in the court by Arun’s father Vinod Nayar on March 13, 2007 after the duo’s marriage was solemnised in Udaipur.
The court has already recorded the statements of the complaint and two witnesses in this case.
