Vasundhra son sues Jairam Ramesh and Times Now


Jaipur : Rajasthan Chief Minister’s son and a member of Lok Sabha from Jhalawar, Dushyant Singh, on Tuesday filed defamation complaints against Congress leader and former Union minister Jairam Ramesh and news channel Times Now. The complaints have been filed under Section 500 of the Indian Penal Code in the court of additional judicial magistrate of Dholpur.

A 159-page complaint claims that Ramesh had wrongly alleged that the Dholpur City Palace belongs to the state government and Dushyant Singh was illegally occupying it.

Ramesh, it will be recalled, in a media conference, had also alleged that Dushyant Singh had accepted compensation from the National Highway Authority for land which never belonged to him.


The second complaint is against Times Now channel, its owner Vineet Jain, other directors and Arnab Goswami, on whose show ‘Newshour’, Goswami had allegedly launched a tirade against Dushyant. The complaint claims that the allegations levelled by Goswami were all baseless.
