Lalit Modi to take legal action against Rahul Gandhi in UK court for defamation

NEW DELHI: Former Indian Premier League (IPL) commissioner, Lalit Modi, has announced his decision to file a case against Rahul Gandhi, a leader of the Indian National Congress party, in a UK court. This comes after Gandhi referred to Modi as a “fugitive” on multiple occasions.

Modi, who has been living in London since 2010, took to Twitter to question the basis for Gandhi’s allegations, writing, “I see that any Tom, Dick and Gandhi family members repeatedly call me a fugitive… Why? How? When was I convicted in this case…” He then stated his intention to sue Gandhi in the British court, adding that he was confident that the Congress leader would have to present strong evidence to back up his claims.

This is not the first time that Modi has been embroiled in controversy. He was charged with money laundering and other financial irregularities in 2010, which led to his removal from the IPL. Modi has denied the charges and has been fighting a legal battle against them.

Recently, Priyanka Gandhi, another Congress leader, made allegations against Modi in a tweet. Rahul Gandhi has also accused the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), the ruling party in India, of protecting Modi.

The case between Modi and Rahul Gandhi is likely to attract significant media attention, given the high-profile nature of both individuals involved.
