New Delhi: Noted lawyer Ram Jethmalani and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Thursday approached a Delhi court with a joint application to end a pending suit relating to his expulsion from the BJP.

Jethmalani had filed the suit against the BJP for expelling him in 2013. He had also sought Rs 50 lakh in damages.

The BJP and 95-year-old Jethmalani said in the joint plea that a decree be passed in terms of amicable settlement between them as BJP president Amit Shah has expressed "regret" over the senior lawyer's expulsion from the party.
