On Friday a Delhi Court reserved its order whether to summon Congress leader Jairam Ramesh. National Security Adviser Ajit Doval’s son Vivek Doval had earlier filed a criminal defamation case against Congress leader Jairam Ramesh as well as against a news magazine Caravan.
On January 16, the Caravan wrote in an article titled ‘The D Companies’ and stated Vivek Doval “runs a hedge fund in the Cayman Islands” which is “an established tax haven” and was “registered merely 13 days after Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s government demonetized all existing Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 currency notes, in 2016.”
After the article was published Jairam Ramesh urged for an investigation by the Reserve Bank of India into the hedge fund.
In his complaint, Vivek said that the magazine and Ramesh have attempted to “deliberately malign and defame” him to “settle scores with his father”. In the complaint, Vivek stated that Mr. Ramesh held a press conference on January 17 repeating the “baseless and unfounded facts” as narrated in the article.
The court recorded the statement of Nikhil Kapur, one of the friend of Vivek and his business partner Amit Sharma who claimed that allegations in the article were false.
On January 30, Vivek recorded his statement where he stated that all the allegations leveled against him by the magazine and Ramesh were “baseless” and “false”. He also said that it has damaged his reputation in the family members and professional colleagues.
According to Vivek, the filed complaint contains “no illegality” in the article but the entire narration has been presented in a wrong way, which suggests “wrongdoings” to readers.
