Bhima Jewellers move Kerala High Court

Bhima Jewellers approached Kerala High Court for legal assistance against social media campaign going on in connection with the gold smuggling case.

On Tuesday, 21st July 2020 a petition was filed by B Govindan, Managing Partner of Bhima Jewellers through Senior Advocate CC Thomas. According to the plea scandalous post were published by two persons on Facebook regarding the seizure of diplomatic consignment at Thiruvananthapuram Airport. 

The plea stated “Through these posts, they have attempted to tarnish the image of the firm by dragging it into the seizure of the consignment. In fact, the firm has no relation to the seizure. Being a public figure and a dignitary, the petitioner was invited to attend United Arab Emirates Consulate Day and many dignitaries from various parts of the world participated in it.” 

It said that a person from Palakkad “forged the logo of the firm and gave a scandalous caption.”

The petition said “A former employee of the firm, who was fired for misappropriation, shared the posts to various persons working in the jewellery business. Two vernacular online news portals published news about the petitioner’s firm.”

According to the plea the Facebook post and online news portals together have caused terrible damages to the petitioner’s firm.

The plea also stated that a police complaint has been lodged against them for blocking the posts but “no action has been taken.”
