It is a Contempt of Court.
Pl give more details regarding false affidavit to High Court too.
also suggest the punishment under the Law.
Prejury is the word for giving false information or affdavit to court, if proved it can lead to serious implication, it is not to be related as contempt of court.
False affidavit is perjury. Telling flasshood on oath in a court of law. Contempt of court is different.
If this is a Judicial Proceedings, This is amounting to contempt..
It is nobody's business to mislead the Court. Appropriate action should be taken against such acts of perjury.
It is not perjury in all cases. for more details. see the DelhiHC judgment in:
BSES Rajdhani Power Ltd. Vs. Shiv Lal.
