Mahua Moitra has filed a defamation case against BJP MP Nishikant Dubey and lawyer Anant Dehadrai.
The defamation petition of Mahua Moitra, who lost her Parliament membership in the Cash for Query case, will be heard in the Delhi High Court today. Mahua had filed this petition against BJP MP Nishikant Dubey and Supreme Court lawyer Anant Dehadrai. He had said that the cash for query case is false. Nishikant and Dehadrai have tried to tarnish his image by making false allegations against him.
Actually, Nishikant Dubey had written a letter to Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla on 15 October 2023. In this letter he had said that after taking money from businessman Darshan Hiranandani, he asked questions. Some of these questions were related to Adani Group. Apart from this, Anant Dehadrai had complained to CBI that Mahua Moitra had given access to the online account of Lok Sabha to Hiranandani. Mahua Moitra had asked 50 to 61 questions on this basis.
Mahua Moitra was accused of taking money and raising questions in Parliament.
Mahua Moitra had filed a defamation case in Delhi HC against Nishikant Dubey, Dehadrai and some media organizations. However, Mahua later demanded the removal of media organizations from the case, which the court accepted. Now the case is going on only against Nishikant Dubey and Anant Dehadrai.
Mahua’s lawyer had recused himself from the case
Anant Dehadrai said in front of the judge in the hearing held on October 20 – Mahua Moitra’s lawyer Gopal Shankaranarayanan had called me. He asked me if there could be an outside agreement?
On this, Justice Sachin Dutta had said that it is surprising that lawyer Shankaranarayanan played the role of mediator. Is he still entitled to appear in this case? After this Sankaranarayanan distanced himself from the case. After this, lawyer Samudra Sarangi is fighting this case on behalf of Mahua.
