Dhoni's lawyer denied to receive any summons in the past
Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s lawyer Rajneesh Chopra said that Dhoni never received a summons from a local court in Andhra Pradesh.
Earlier in today, Indian cricket limited-over skipper MS Dhoni has been asked to attend Anantpur District Court inside 25th February 2016 in an allegation on him to hurt a Hindu God on a magazine cover page. The court has issued today a non-bailable warrant to Dhoni for not responding on the court’s summons.
On Friday, Rajneesh said in a statement issued by Rhiti Sports, “Mahendra Singh Dhoni has the utmost respect for the judiciary but the fact of the matter is that he has personally never received any summons with respect to the present case; therefore the order appears to be erroneous.” Rhiti Sports is the company who is managing Dhoni.
Rajneesh added, “Even as such, proceedings in a similar matter pending before the Hon’ble District Court of Bengaluru, Karnataka, has already been stayed by the Hon’ble Supreme Court of India. In this matter, accordingly we will approach the courts and seek appropriate directions thereto.”
MS Dhoni is currently touring in Australia to play five-match ODI series and three-match T20I series against the home team between 12th January and 31st January.
Jayakumar Hiremath, a social activist has filed a case against Dhoni by accusing that the Indian skipper was seen on the cover page of Business Today as Lord Vishnu, holding several consumer goods, including a shoe in his hand.
In earlier, Dhoni commented, “I haven’t received any remuneration goodwill or money for the news article or for usage of my picture on the cover page or anywhere else. Neither have I posed for the picture which was published in the magazine on April 14, 2013.”
