Mumbai/UNI: Dhyandev Kachruji Wankhede, father of Zonal Director of the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) in Mumbai Sameer Wankhede, on Sunday filed a defamation suit against Maharashtra Cabinet Minister Nawab Malik at the Bombay High Court, claiming damage of Rs 1.25 crore.

According to Dhyandev's suit, he sought a permanent injunction restraining Malik, his party members and all others acting under or on his instructions from publishing, writing or speaking in the media about him and his family members.

Dhyandev has also prayed that the high court should declare that Malik’s “remarks, insinuations and/or imputation, whether in writing or oral, stated by him” in press releases or interviews or social media, including but not limited to his Twitter account and his family members, be “tortious and defamatory in nature”.

The suit says that Malik has done “irreparable loss, damage, harm, prejudice to the name, character, reputation and societal image of plaintiff and his family members”.

Wankhede's lawyer, Arshad Shaikh, said Malik has been calling the Wankhede family “fraud and questioning their religious beliefs, saying they are not Hindus”.

He added that Malik was calling everybody (in the Wankhede family) a fraud. Literally, on a daily basis," and destroying the practice of his daughter Yasmin, who is a criminal lawyer and does not appear in narcotics cases.

The petition will be mentioned on Monday before the Bombay high court with a request for an urgent hearing and the court will fix a date for its hearing he further said.
