The Mumbai High Court sent notices to Shah Rukh Khan and his wife Gouri Khan following petition from a social activist Varsha Deshpande.
The petitioner Varsha Deshpande first filed her petition in the magistrate’s court seeking documents pertaining to the child Shah Rukh and Gouri’s child through surrogacy. Varsha appealed for an action against the couple for violating the Act of Pre-conception and Pre-Natal Diagnostic Techniques (Prohibition of Sex Selection) Act (PCPNDT).
The Magistrate court rejected her plea for the documents pertaining to the child’s birth. The petitioner then challenged the magistrate court’s order in the High Court.
Justice RP Sondurbaldota issued notices to Shah Rukh Khan, Gouri Khan, Jaslok Hospital where the child was born under surrogacy and the Civic body in the matter and the case is adjourned to Jan 10 for further conducting the inquiry.
