Sonia sheokand, a civil judge of a district court in gurugram, the satellite city of New Delhi, has issued subpoenas to more than a dozen people or companies, including Alibaba and Ma Yun, asking them to appear in court or through lawyers on July 29.
The lawsuit is the latest hurdle for Alibaba in India, after India removed Alibabas apps such as UC browser from the shelves, and UCWEB began to lay off employees in India.
Previously, UC browsers had at least 689 million downloads in India, compared with 79.8 million downloads from ucnews, according to analyst firm sensor tower.
In court documents, former employee Pama showed summaries of Posts posted on ucnews that he believed were false. A post published in 2017 was titled in Hindi: starting from midnight today, the issue of 2000 rupee notes is prohibited; in 2018, the title of an article is: just now, India Pakistan war, which describes the exchange of fire between India and Pakistan over the disputed border issue. In fact, India has not banned the issuance of 2000 rupee notes, nor has there been a war between India and Pakistan in 2018.
