BJP leader Vinay Kumar Singh has filed a defamation case
BJP leader Vinay Kumar Singh’s lawyer told the court that he is ready to provide the physical copy of the suit to the British company. The lawyer appearing for the BBC immediately said that the Delhi court has no jurisdiction to try a defamation case against it. Additional District Judge Ruchika Singla said in her judgment that the BBC’s counsel said that they had not received the notice. When the complainant offered to give him a copy of the notice, he flatly refused saying that it was a foreign company. Such cases cannot be run against him.
Rohini’s court said on BBC’s plea that they are ready to debate their claim. The date of May 26 has been fixed for the hearing of the case. The court said that it will hear in detail on what basis the BBC is saying that the case cannot be prosecuted against it in Delhi.
