Mahua Moitra's ex-partner files defamation case against her, hearing today

Jai Anant Dehadrai, the former partner of Trinamool Congress leader Mahua Moitra, has filed a defamation case against the expelled MP at the Delhi High Court.

Jai Anant Dehadrai, a Supreme Court lawyer and former partner of Trinamool Congress leader Mahua Moitra, has filed a defamation case against the expelled MP at the Delhi High Court. The case hearing will take place today.

In his suit filed in the High Court, Dehadrai has sought damages worth Rs 2 crore from Moitra for the abusive and defamatory statements that she made against Dehadrai on various media outlets, as well as social media platforms in connection to the cash-for-query row, alleging that he was "jobless" and "jilted".

The suit also seeks a permanent injunction directing to take down the defamatory content from the social media platforms.

The Supreme Court lawyer's defamation case came weeks after the Delhi High Court had dismissed Moitra's petition seeking to restrain Dehadrai and BJP MP Nishikant Dubey from posting any "fake and defamatory" content against her in the cash-for-query case.

While dismissing the petition on March 4, the High Court observed that the Trinamool Congress leader did not make a full disclosure in her complaint.

Moitra was expelled as a Lok Sabha MP in December 2023 after an Ethics Committee found her "guilty of unethical conduct" and called for "an intense, legal, institutional inquiry" by the government into the charge.

Dehadrai, Moitra's estranged partner, has alleged that the expelled MP admitted she gave her Parliament login and password details to businessman Darshan Hiranandani but denied taking any cash from him.
