Big B can <i>take light</i>, HC rejects plea against him

Amitabh Bachchan can breathe easy, as Allahabad HC rejects the plea against him.

Lucknow: The Allahabad High Court on Tuesday dismissed a writ petition challenging an order which rejected an application questioning superstar Amitabh Bachchan's assertion in advertisements that crime was less in Uttar Pradesh during the Samajwadi Party regime.

A division Bench comprising Justice U K Dhaon and Justice S S Chauhan, which had reserved its verdict, on Tuesday quashed the petition filed by one Brij Bhushan Dubey.

The petitioner had challenged the decision of the state information commission, which had rejected his application seeking to know from Bachchan the basis of his claim in the advertisement in which he said “UP mein hai dum kyonki jurm yahan hai kam”.

The Commission had rejected the application after going through the reply filed by Bachahan's lawyer to its notice.
