Mahua Moitra sues Nishikant Dubey, Jai Anant Dehadrai for defamation

On Tuesday, Trinamool Congress MP Mahua Moitra initiated a defamation lawsuit in the Delhi High Court against Bharatiya Janata Party MP Nishikant Dubey, Supreme Court lawyer Jai Anant Dehadrai, and multiple media organizations. Nishikant Dubey and Dehadrai alleged that Moitra had received “bribes” in exchange for posing questions in the Lok Sabha. The case was presented before Justice Sachin Datta’s bench today, and the court scheduled a hearing for Friday.

Jai Anant Dehadrai is reported to be an estranged partner of Mahua Moitra, and they are currently engaged in a bitter dispute over the custody of their pet dog.

Filed several police complaints

Moitra has filed several police complaints against Dehadrai in the past six months, involving allegations of criminal trespass, theft, vulgar messages, and abuse, as per the news agency PTI.

Nishikant Dubey, who previously wrote to Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla accusing Moitra of receiving ‘bribes’ from businessman Darshan Hiranandani in the form of cash and ‘gifts’ in exchange for parliamentary questions, has also reached out to Union Minister for Information Technology Ashwini Vaishnaw, urging an investigation into the IP addresses linked to her House log-in credentials. Dubey claimed that lawyer Jai Anant Dehadrai had provided “indisputable evidence of exchanged bribes” between Moitra and Darshan Hiranandani.

Moitra’s response:

In response, on social media platform X, Moitra had posted, “Am using all my ill gotten cash & gifts to buy a college/ university in which Degree Dubey can finally buy a real degree. Please @ombirlakota @loksabhaspeaker finish the enquiries against him for false affidavits & then set up my enquiry committee”.

“We have always been in the business of business and not in the business of politics. Our group has always worked with the government in the interest of the nation and will continue doing so”, the Hiranandani group said in a statement.

The speaker of the Lok Sabha referred Dubey’s complaint against the MP to the lower House’s ethics committee on Tuesday. Vinod Kumar Sonkar, a member of the BJP, serves as chair of the Lok Sabha’s ethics committee.
