NEW DELHI: BJP chief Amit Shah's son Jay Shah on Sunday filed a Rs 100 crore defamation suit against a news website.
An article on the website alluded to certain financial irregularities by Temple Enterprise Private Ltd, a company owned by Jay Shah.
“The article makes false, derogatory and defamatory imputation against me by creating in the minds of right- thinking people an impression that my business owes its 'success' to my father Shri Amitbhai Shah's political position ... My businesses are fully legitimate and conducted in a lawful manner on commercial lines, which is reflected in my tax records, and are through banking transactions,” Jay Shah said in a statement, reports the PTI.
The article alleged that the annual turnover of Temple Enterprise shot up by 16,000 times in 2015-16, nearly Rs 80 crore over the previous year.
