Swatanter Kumar files defamation case against media, intern
New Delhi, Jan 15 : Former Supreme Court judge and National Green Tribunal chairman Justice Swatanter Kumar Wednesday moved the Delhi High Court for a defamation case against media organisations and an intern who accused him of sexual harassment.
Mentioning the matter before Justice G.S. Sistani, the bunch of lawyers appearing for Justice Kumar also sought an order restraining media from reporting the case, except "fair reporting of court orders".
Justice Sistani marked the matter to another judge, which would come up for hearing Wednesday afternoon.
The NGT chairman sought damages of Rs.5 crore from media organisations and the intern.
On Jan 11, Justice Kumar sent legal notice and warned that he would initiate both criminal and civil defamation suits if the media organisations - Indian Express, Times Now and CNN-IBN - failed to apologise within the deadline.
