Jaipur: BJP's Lok Sabha member Dushyant Singh, the son of Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje, on Tuesday filed a defamation complaint against Congress leader Jairam Ramesh and a TV channel in a court in Dholpur.
"We have filed a complaint under Section 500 of the Indian Penal Code (which deals with punishment for defamation) against Jairam Ramesh and another complaint against a TV channel in the additional chief judicial magistrate's court in Dholpur," Dushyant Singh's counsel V.R.S. Bajwa told IANS.
The lawyer said Ramesh "has been quoted in certain sections of the media saying that Dhoplur Palace does not belong to Dushyant Singh and it is government property".
"He (Ramesh) also alleged that Dushyant Singh took compensation from the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) on the wrong pretext. All these allegations are completely false and defamatory in nature," he said.
The hearing in the case is slated to take place on August 5.
