Mallika Sherawat seeks withdrawal of criminal cases against her

Rajnikant Borile had filed an application before the Judicial Magistrate First Class at Pandharkawda in Yavatmal district seeking registration of cases under IPC section 291 (continuance of nuisance after injunction to discontinue) against Mallika on April 8, 2009.
The same court issued summons to Mallika on April 3, 2010 but she failed to appear before it.

Borile had alleged that the actress had performed "obscene acts" in films like 'Shaadi Ke Pehle', 'Murder' and 'Maan Gaya Mughal-e-Azam' which were affecting the society and younger generation in particular.Since the actor was performing to earn money, she should be booked under IPC Section 291, he contended.Mallika was accordingly booked.
Justice P D Kode, Judge at the HC Bench here yesterday had issued notices to state government and the respondent Borile asking them to file their reply by September 23.
