The Delhi High Court Wednesday ordered that a perjury case be registered against Bollywood actor Shayan Munshi and ballistic expert Prem Sagar Minocha for turning hostile during their deposition in the murder trial of model Jessica Lall.

A division bench of Justice S. Ravindra Bhat and Justice G.P. Mittal also discharged 17 other witnesses in the case.

The accused may get seven years maximum punishment under the perjury case.

The model was shot dead at Tamarind Court, a restaurant owned by socialite Bina Ramani, in south Delhi's Mehrauli area on the night of April 29-30, 1999.
