Bombay HC to hear sex determination case against  Gauri, Shah Rukh Khan
The Bombay High Court had issued notices to SRK, his wife Gauri on a petition filed by a social activist.

New Delhi: The Bombay High Court will conduct the hearing on the notice issued to Shah Rukh Khan, wife Gauri Khan and the BMC in the sex determination case of their child born through surrogacy today. The notice has been issued to the celebrity couple after Varsha Despande, a social activist, filed a petition challenging a lower court's order that refused to take any action under PNDT Act Pre-conception and Pre-Natal Diagnostic Techniques Act.

Varsha Despande had alleged that Khans had conducted a sex determination test before their third child, AbRam, was born through surrogacy.

Deshpande sought documents pertaining to the surrogacy process and documents collected by the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) in its inquiry into the matter.

The civic body initiated inquiry following Deshpande's allegations and gave a clean chit to Shahrukh and his wife, saying no offence under the PCPNDT Act had been committed.

"The magistrate rejected our application seeking production and verification of documents following which we approached the High Court," Deshpande's lawyer, advocate Uday Warunjikar said.
