Congress leader Jagdish Tytler was on Thursday issued summons by a Delhi court to respond to the allegations of defaming a lawyer.

New Delhi: Congress leader Jagdish Tytler was
on Thursday issued summons by a Delhi court to respond to the
allegations of defaming a lawyer fighting for the rights of
several 1984 anti-Sikh riot victims.

Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate (ACMM) Amit
Bansal issued summons to Tytler for April 11 to reply to
advocate H S Phoolka`s allegation of defaming him. Tytler,
however, was earlier given exemption by the court from
appearing in person.

Phoolka alleged Tytler had made a derogatory remark
against him in a news programme aired on a news channel on
September 7, 2004.

Phoolka said the "false and derogatory" allegations
leveled by Tytler against him has harmed his reputation in
the society.

Reading out a portion of the complaint in the court,
advocate Kamna Vohra, appearing for Phoolka, said Tytler
should be prosecuted also for the alleged offence of criminal
intimidation.
