The Delhi High Court has ordered Snapdeal founders Kunal Bahl and Rohit Bansal to personally appear before it on January 9, in a contempt case where two sellers had allegedly listed counterfeit Hindustan Unilever products on the platform by flouting a court order, two people in the know of the matter said. On Tuesday, Snapdeal’s lawyers filed a plea seeking exemption from personal appearance for Bahl and Bansal. The court is expected to hear that on January 7, one of the people said. In the case that has been ongoing for several months now, HUL claimed that the sellers had offered fake Indulekha-branded hair oil and hair cleanser on Snapdeal. The consumer goods company that owns the brand had made Snapdeal and its logistics partners party to the case.
