Mumbai, Nov 11: Maharashtra Minister and Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader Nawab Malik’s son-in-law Sameer Khan has sent a legal notice to BJP leader and former Maharashtra chief minister Devendra Fadnavis, demanding Rs 5 crore damages for ‘mental torture, agony, financial loss and injury’ inflicted to his reputation because of Fadnavis’ statement on a television channel.
Sameer Khan was arrested in a drug-related case early this year and is now out on bail. Fadnavis on November 1 accused Khan of possessing drugs, while the investigation into the case is still going on.
Khan was arrested on January 13 by NCB for dealing with commercial quantities of drugs. He was granted bail on September 27, after eight months in prison.
