So, deliberate false affidavit in a lower court IS perjury and punishment for perjury can be one amongst the prayers amongst other reliefs, interim relief in a writ.
Now, coming to characteristic of this case:
* It pertains illegalities that closed a contempt petition in CAT.
* It involves a cognisable offence and then perjury.
* The case has 3 official respondents, 5 personal respondents and the lawyer who committed this.
I am given to understand that I need to serve a copy on the first official respondent and file one with the court. Once it is admitted, I would have to file the rest of the 8 copies and the additional fees (to serve on opponents).
