Court defers hearing on defamation case against Tytler

A city court on Saturday deferred the hearing in a defamation case against former Central Minister Jagdish Tytler.



New Delhi: A city court on Saturday deferred the hearing in a defamation case against former Central Minister Jagdish Tytler.

Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Ajay Pandey could not take up the hearing during the day and slated it for Feb 23.

The case against Tytler was filed by senior advocate H.S. Phoolka in a Ludhiana court in Punjab.
Phoolka alleged Tytler made a derogatory remark about him in a news programme aired on a private news channel Sep 7, 2004. Phoolka was then rendering legal aid to the 1984 anti-Sikh riots victims.

The case was being heard in a Ludhiana court until the Supreme Court transferred it to Delhi.
