Kissing row: Supreme Court to hear Shilpa Shettys request

The Supreme Court will hear today Bollywood actress Shilpa Shettys request to stay criminal proceedings against her in connection with the kissing episode, involving Hollywood actor Richard Gere.

New Delhi, May 15 : The Supreme Court will hear today Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty's request to stay criminal proceedings against her in connection with the kissing episode, involving Hollywood actor Richard Gere.

A bench headed by Chief Justice K G Balakrishnan will hear the matter.

Criminal cases were registered against Shilpa at the Jodhpur, Ghaziabad and Munawar (Halwar) police stations. Shilpa has sought a quashing of all criminal cases.

Shilpa also pleaded for transfer of these cases to Mumbai on the grounds that she frequently travels within the country and abroad. She pleaded that since she is based in Mumbai, it would be convenient for her to attend court in the city.

The controversy began after Gere kissed Shilpa during an AIDS awareness programme in Delhi.A warrant was issued for Gere's arrest, setting off a protest from senior lawyers who said that there was no 'legal merit in the case'.

Later, the judge, Dinesh Gupta, who issued the warrant, was transferred from Jaipur to the town of Kishangarh.

But, the authorities are insisting that the transfer was a routine one and for 'administrative reasons'.
