Defamation case by Sabir Ali: BJP’s Naqvi summoned as accused

BJP vice-president Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi has been summoned as an accused by a Delhi court in a defamation complaint filed against him by former JD(U) leader Sabir Ali for allegedly linking him with arrested Indian Mujahideen co-founder Yasin Bhatkal. Metropolitan magistrate Akash Jain said ‘prima facie’ there was evidence and sufficient ground to proceed against Naqvi for the alleged offence of defaming Ali, a sitting Rajya Sabha member of Parliament.

The court has summoned Naqvi, who is also a sitting Rajya Sabha MP, on 9 July as an accused.
Ali, in his complaint, alleged that Naqvi had termed him as a friend of terrorist Bhatkal in March and the story was circulated and telecast in India as well as abroad through social media as well as various newspapers and channels.
