Political slugfest has erupted after Chennai Police registered a case against Sabareesan Vedamurthy, son-in-law of DMK chief MK Stalin, for allegedly spreading rumours about Deputy Speaker V Jayaraman in the Pollachi abuse case. Reports now suggest that Jayaraman has shot legal notice against the Deputy Speaker.
"I have already sent a legal notice even before the FIR was lodged," Sabareesan told IANS on Friday. In the notice, he has demanded ‘unconditional apology’ for slanderous remarks made against him.
Stalin’s son-in-law has also demanded Rs 50,000 grant for charity.
On his part, Stalin has sent a legal notice to Jayaraman demanding an apology for making slanderous statement against him, the DMK said in a late-night statement on Thursday.
Stalin's son-in-law has been charged for wantonly giving provocation for the creation of riot, forgery for harming reputation, use of forged document as a genuine one and for spreading rumours, reports IANS.
In the legal notice to Jayaraman, the DMK president said the former had made false allegations in the media that he, his family members and his party are behind the sexual abuse case and are attempting to protect some accused involved in the criminal act which are defamatory.
Jayaraman has charged the DMK for defaming him and his family.
