Wadia had filed a criminal defamation case against Tata sons, the holding company of Tata group and its executives in 2016. He had sought ₹3,000cr as damages. Wadia has moved the apex court challenging the Bombay high court order of last year, which quashed proceedings initiated by a local Mumbai court against Tata group executives and board members including Ratan Tata.
