Agitated over Digvijay Singh's remark comparing her to Arvind Kejriwal, Bollywood item girl Rakhi Sawant plans to slap a defamation notice on the Congress leader seeking Rs 50 crore as damages.
Singh had in his tweet yesterday compared activist-turned -politician Kejriwal with Rakhi saying they both try and expose but without any substance.
"Arvind Kejriwal is like Rakhi Sawant. They both try and expose but with no substance. Apologies to Rakhi Sawant I am an old fan of hers!" Singh tweeted.
Rakhi shot off letters to Mumbai Police Commissioner and Maharashtra Home Secretary asking them to book the Congress general secretary for "outraging" her modesty.
Claiming to be "deeply aggrieved" by Singh's comments, Rakhi has said she has also asked her lawyer to issue a defamation notice to the Congress leader and seek Rs 50 crore in damages for attacking her "noble character".
In her letter to the Police Commissioner Satyapal Singh, state Home Secretary and senior police inspector of suburban Goregaon police station, she said, "I do not know Digvijay personally. By passing such comment he (Digvijay) has lowered my image and reputation."
"I have already issued instruction to my lawyer Ejaz Naqvi to issue notice of defamation and damage of Rs 50 crore from Digvijay Singh. This is a gruesome attack on my noble character," the letter states.
Rakhi has urged the police to book the Congress leader under the provisions of section 354 (outraging the modesty of a woman), 427 (mischief), 500 (defamation) and 511 (punishment for attempting to commit offences punishable with life or other imprisonment) of IPC and also under the Information Technology Act. The matter should be probed by CBI," the letter demands.
Kejriwal has in the last few weeks targeted Congress President Sonia Gandhi's son-in-law Robert Vadra for his land deals with DLF, External Affairs Minister Salman Khurshid for allegedly misusing funds allotted to his NGO, BJP chief Nitin Gadkari in the Maharashtra irrigation scam, besides corporate giants including Mukesh Ambani.
