The High Court has issued a ruling requiring Meghana Sawardekar to deposit a sum of ₹2 crore with the court. This ruling comes as a response to Sawardekar's plea challenging the summons issued by the Mardol police. The monetary deposit, as directed by the Court, will serve as a provision for potential compensation to individuals who may have been adversely affected by the case.
