The arrested men identified as court master Manav Sharma and assistant registrar Tapan Kumar Chakraborty were sacked by the Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi following a complaint that they tampered with an order of the court directing personal presence Anil Ambani in a contempt case.
Besides seeking contempt proceedings against RCom chairman Anil Dhirubhai Ambani and two others, Ericsson has also sought that they be "detained in civil prison" unless they purge themselves by making the payment.
The top court had approved the settlement between RCom and Ericsson India Pvt Ltd. over a payment dispute and asked the telecom company to pay Rs 550 crore to the Indian arm of the Swedish firm by September 30.
RCom lenders had also opposed the NCLT order as they see in Jio best option to recover their dues. RCom had reached a settlement with HSBC Daisy Investments — a minority shareholder in Reliance Infratel.
