Super Cassettes Industries Ltd. owner of leading music label T-Series has lodged an FIR against Ram Gopal Verma in the Noida Police Station (Sector 20), Uttar Pradesh. The charges levied on him included fraud, conspiracy, extortion, cheating and criminal breach of trust, under IPC Sections 385, 409, 420, 421 and 422. Mr. Ram Gopal Verma had entered into a contract assigning Super Cassettes Industries Limited (T-Series) Music Rights for 14 of his forthcoming films in June 2006. The said contract was duly performed and acted upon by both the parties and since then four out of the said 14 films namely DARWAJA BAND RAKHO, NISHABD, RGV KI AAG & SHIVA have been released by T-SERIES. T-SERIES had also made payments for the same and had also made advance payments for forthcoming films by RGV. Mr Verma had tried to terminate the said contract in November 2007 on grounds that were not acceptable to T-SERIES.
Realizing that Mr. Verma was acting unreasonable, T-SERIES in order to secure its interest and rights under the said contract moved the District Court of Noida, Uttar Pradesh on 23-1-2008. On 23-1-2008 the Hon’ble Court issued notice against RGV Film Factory Private Limited and RGV Films Private Limited and issued summons asking them to appear and defend the suit. Instead of developing the case against him RGV has been going to press claiming that documents are forged and fabricated. He has not specified exactly which document is forged and fabricated. RGV had firstly filed a complaint with Jt. Commissioner Police (EOW), Mumbai and recently filed another compliant at the Versova police station as reported by the media. Looking at the proceedings, SCIL has been constrained to file a criminal complaint in the police station.
