    Xiaomi vows to fight High Court order to resume India sales

    Chinese smartphone maker Xiaomi says it will fully comply with the Delhi high Court order asking it to stop sales of its smatphones in the country, Manu Jain, head of the company's India operations, told ET. Xiaomi, the third largest smartphone maker in the world, had earlier suspended the upcoming flash sale of its Red Mi 1S and Red Mi Note smartphones.

    "We have not been served the notice till now, but we know about the issue. If the court has asked us not to do it, we won't do it," Jain said referring to the high court order barring Xiaomi from selling, importing or advertising mobile phones in India until February 5, the next date of hearing. "We would want to be 100% compliant with Indian rules and regulations."

    The order, which followed telecom equipment maker Ericsson's plea that Xiaomi was infringing on its patents, leaves its future flash sales and business prospects in ambiguity even as the fast growing smartphone maker is trying to work out legally to resolve this issue in a critical market for the company. "We will explore all options including legal options on what can be done. Our lawyers and legal teams are working on it but we don't know how this will proceed.
    We will communicate and explain very openly to our users about what the order says, once we get it," Jain added. The Delhi High Court on Tuesday had asked Xiaomi and its exclusive partner Flipkart to stop selling and importing phones in India until February 5 on Ericsson's allegations that Xiaomi infringed eight of its registered standard essential patents.

    Hugo Barra, head of international operations at Xiaomi, apologised to enthusiasts on Facebook on Thursday night while informing them about the company's decision to suspend sales. He added however, that the company 'firmly' intends to continue operations in India.

    Actor Rajpal Yadav sent to 10 days police custody

    The Delhi High Court Tuesday remanded Bollywood actor Rajpal Yadav to 10 days police custody for concealing facts about a Rs5 crore recovery suit filed against him and his wife by a Delhi-based entrepreneur.

    Justice S Murlidhar also asked Yadav's wife to remain present in the
    registrar general's office till the rising of the court.

    The judge also issued a contempt of court notice against two lawyers representing the couple.

    Rajpal has appeared in films such as Hungama, Waqt: The Race Against Time, Chup Chup Ke, Garam Masala, Phir Hera Pheri, Dhol to name a few.

    The entrepreneur, MG Agarwal, filed a cheating case against the actor a few years ago, in which he alleged that Yadav, who turned producer with his movie Ata Pata Laapata failed to pay back a loan of Rs. 5 crore.

    Agarwal's lawyer had alleged that Yadav had given his client eight cheques, all of which bounced. He added that they signed two contracts with Yadav, which gave Murli Projects the rights to the music and overall production of the movie.

    However, Agarwal has alleged that Yadav went behind his back and released the music independently and also declared the release date of the movie.
