Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa on Tuesday filed two more defamation cases against BJP leader Subramanian Swamy for his comments on Twitter.
City Public Prosecutor (CPP) ML Jegan filed the cases on behalf of Jayalalithaa before the Principal Sessions Court.
Swamy’s comments in Twitter on September 20 allegedly ridiculed her, the CPP contended.
Another defamation case was also filed against Swamy in the court for his comments on Twitter on September 17 regarding her assets.
This statement of Swamy is defamatory in nature and would defame the Chief Minister in the eyes of public, the CPP submitted.
A local court had on September 17 ordered issue of summons to Swamy to appear before it on October 30 in connection with a defamation suit filed against him over his remarks related to the issue of Tamil Nadu fishermen being detained by Sri Lanka.
