Panaji : Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar and Tourism Minister Dilip Parulekar have been dragged into a defamation suit filed by Sunburn music festival promoters against a local opposition politician.

Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) state vice president Trajano D’mello in his reply filed with the Bombay High Court Tuesday sought that Parrikar be summoned as a defence witness in the defamation case.

D’Mello has also alleged that the defamation suit has been filed against him by Percept India, at the instance of Tourism Minister Dilip Parulekar, against whom he has already filed a public interest litigation (PIL) in connection with a land-grabbing case.
