AK Jain, the counsel of Karishma Kapoor and Sunny Deol, has said that the actors have challenged the order in a sessions court on Wednesday.

The actors were accused of illegally pulling the chain of train 2413-A Uplink Express, which led to its delay by 25 minutes.

The counsel said the charges were initially read out against both the actors in 2009, which they challenged in a sessions court in April 2010.

Stuntman Tinu Verma and Satish Shah were also accused in the case apart from Sunny Deol and Karisma Kapoor but they had not challenged the charges against them in the sessions court in 2010.

The railway court has scheduled the next hearing in the 1997 case on September 24.
