Mumbai: Mumbai Pradesh Congress Committee chief and MLA Kripashankar Singh has sent a legal notice to Shiv Sena chief Bal Thackeray and party member and editor of Marathi daily 'Saamna' Sanjay Raut for alleged defamation.

In the notice, Singh has claimed that since February 7, several news articles have been published in 'Saamna', the party mouthpiece, which had been "defamatory, false and frivolous".

"The articles talk about how Singh has stashed away Rs 100 crores in several banks and has several properties. Before publishing the said articles, you (Saamna) have not obtained any information or clarification from Singh. The said stories are false and have been published with a view to defame Singh and to get advantage to the political party Shiv Sena," the notice said.

Demanding an apology to be published within three days, Singh has threatened to file a civil suit of defamation demanding Rs 10 crore damage.
