Her plea further alleged that these media houses are involved in carrying out their own investigations in the case, hence, mocking at the judicial system.

The plea stated, "A bare perusal of the Defamatory Articles and Defamatory Videos amply clarify that the Defendants are publishing/ uploading parallel private “investigations” and effectively acting as “courts” to condemn the Applicant and her husband as guilty based on what they claim is “evidence” found by them from their alleged sources, thereby trying to make a mockery of the judicial system."

It has also been learnt from the sources, Shetty has sought an apology from the media houses along with the removal of defamatory content. She has also asked for Rs 25 crore as compensation.
