June,2,2015: A district court in Muzaffarpur directed police on Tuesday to register an FIR against two Nestle officials and film stars Amitabh Bachchan, Madhuri Dixit and Preity Zinta, who have featured in the Maggi advertisements and arrest them if required.
Additional Chief Judicial Magistrate Ramchandra Prasad directed Kazi Mohammadpur police station to register the FIR against the five and investigate the complaint.
The court also directed the police to go for arrest if required in the course of investigation.
The order came during the hearing of a case filed by lawyer Sudhir Kumar Ojha.
The petition had named Managing Director of Nestle Mohan Gupta, its Joint Director Sabab Alam and Amitabh, Madhuri and Preity, who have featured in Maggi ads at different times.
The complainant claimed that he purchased Maggi from a shop at Lenin chowk of Muzaffarpur on May 30 and that he was taken ill after he ate it. This prompted him to file a case against Nestle, the maker of the noodles and the film stars, who are the product’s brand ambassadors.
