Mumbai, October 02:

The Bombay High Court has directed the city police to produce before it case papers pertaining to a complaint lodged by Anita Advani, who claims to have been the live-in partner of late actor Rajesh Khanna, against Khanna`s wife Dimple Kapadia and her family.

Justice Sadhana Jadhav was hearing a petition filed by Dimple and others seeking quashing of the case under the Domestic Violence Act.

"The respondent (Anita) has submitted some photographs and CCTV footages to substantiate her case. The prosecution shall produce all relevant case papers on October 11," Justice Jadhav directed recently.

Soon after the death of Khanna on July 18 last year, Anita had filed a complaint in the Bandra metropolitan magistrate court against Dimple and her family, including her daughters Twinkle and Rinkie, and son-in-law Akshay Kumar, under the Protection of Women from Domestic Violence Act.

Anita had approached the magistrate after she claimed that the police failed to take action on her complaint.

In the complaint, Anita had included video and audio recording of Khanna`s signature being taken on a will forcibly and other footage to prove that she stayed in Khanna`s Aashirwad bungalow.

According to Anita, she was the actor`s live-in partner but was driven out of the suburban bungalow when Khanna fell sick. Anita had sought maintenance from Dimple and her family.

In her petition, Dimple contended that she was the legally wedded wife of Khanna and as such no other woman can claim share in the wealth left behind by her husband.
