Maharashtra Minister and NCP Leader Nawab Malik’s son-in-law has sent a legal notice to former Chief Minister of Maharashtra and BJP Leader Devendra Fadnavis for defaming him. The son-in-law of Nawab Malik has accused Fadnavis for “defamatory and false allegations against him and demanded ₹5 crore on account of mental torture, agony and financial loss.”
Fadnavis accused Sameer Khan of possessing drugs even though the investigation of the case was in process.
The legal notice for defamation said that no contraband or any other suspicious substance was found in the possession of Sameer Khan.
Nilofer, daughter of Nawab Malik posted on Twitter that false accusations can ruin lives and one should know what they are talking about before accusing someone.
“False accusations ruin lives. Before one accused or condemns, they must know what they are talking about. This defamation notice is for the false claims and statements which Devendra Fadnavis has put on my family. We will not back down.”
The war of words between Maharashtra Minister Malik and Former Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis took place after the high profile cruise drugs case in which son of Bollywood actor Shahrukh Khan, Aryan Khan was arrested.
In the recent developments, Nawab Malik has accused Devendra Fadnavis of shielding NCB Zonal Director Sameer Wankhede and “criminalisation of politics.” Malik also said that Fadnavis had strong connections with the underworld.
Nawab Malik’s son-in-law was arrested by the NCB in an alleged drug case on January 13 this year.
