Ahmedabad: Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation (AMC) has filed a Rs 10 crore defamation suite against a Canadian national in a local court here for running a campaign against it, officials of the civic body said today.

Lisa Warden, an animal rights activist has been residing in the city for sometime and is also the founder of social advocacy organisation Stopdog Foundation.

She had been protesting against the AMC's Cattle Nuisance Control Department (CNCD) for its method of trapping and sterilising of stray dogs in different parts of the city.

According to AMC, the suit has been filed in response to the Warden's attempt to tarnish the image of the civic body's CNCD department.

They have also alleged that warded misguided people by giving false statements. She used to give incorrect statements to the media and has also uploaded some video clippings to malign the image of AMC, they said.

The AMC officials said Warden had contacted them through email to hamper the dog sterilisation activity.

They alleged that Warden had once barged into CNCD office in Damnilimda area and forcefully took away the tongs and other apparatus used to catch dog. A complaint in this regard has also been lodged, AMC officials added.
