Later, Bharatpe filed a fresh petition in the Delhi High Court, saying Ashneer’s Grover had posted on social media using derogatory language against the company. Bharatpe says Grover is a habitual offender and has not followed the court's order. 

Meanwhile, during the hearing, Ashneer Grover Grover's lawyer, Giriraj Singh, said Grover had apologised to the court and filed an affidavit stating that he would not disobey the court's order in the future. Giriraj Singh says Grover has also deleted his tweets.

 Advocate Akhil Sibal, appearing for Bharatpe, said during the hearing that there was a lot of delay in deleting the tweet by Grover. On the other hand, by the time the tweet was deleted, the media was reporting on it, due to which the company suffered losses.
