Amit Shah's son to sue website over turnover 'article'

Bombs hurled at CPM march in Kannur; eight injured

Union Minister Piyush Goyal addressing a press conference described the article titled "The Golden Touch of Jay Amit Shah" as "absolutely false, baseless, malicious, defamatory, hollow with absolutely no substance".

"We reject any allegation sought to be made against Mr Jay Shah or any of our leaders", said the BJP leader. He said he has repaid the loans by cheque on commercial rate of interest and within the time stipulated and added that he had mortgaged his family property with the cooperative bank to get the credit facilities. Citing filings with the Registrar of Companies, the report said that the turnover owned by Temple Enterprise Private Ltd, a company where Jay Shah was a director, rose 16,000 times from Rs 15,000 in 2014-15 to Rs 80.5 crore in 2015-16.

"Since the website has proceeded in making an absolutely false imputation in a highly slanted article thereby damaging my reputation, I have made a decision to prosecute the Author, Editor/(s) and the Owner/(s) of the aforesaid news website for criminal defamation and sue them for an amount of Rs 100 crores". Jay Shah has said he will sue The Wire for Rs. 100 crore.

Carlo Ancelotti was removed from his position as head coach of Bayern last week following a disappointing start to the season. He is not " very much looking forward " to working with the team and getting them back on track for the rest of the season.

Prime Minister Modi was on Sunday in Gujarat, while Congress Vice-President Rahul Gandhi is to visit the state on Monday. "Will you ask the ED to arrest these people", asked senior Congress leader Kapil Sibal. "Is PM honest enough to say probe Amit Shah's son?" he said. He said his lawyer had given details of all his legitimate transactions to the author of the story and all questions posed by the writer were answered with details since Mr Jay Shah had "nothing to hide". It alleged the revenues of the company witnessed an "astonishing surge" in the financial year ended March 2015, when the firm received an unsecured loan of Rs 15.78 crore from a financial services firm owned by Rajesh Khandawala, the samdhi (in-law) of Parimal Nathwani, a Rajya Sabha member and top executive of Reliance Industries. The Left parties questioned the silence of the Prime Minister on The Wire's report. We know who the CBI and ED will investigate and who the agencies will not investigate. He said the bank, and not a union minister, should defend the loan. "I want to tell the Communist and Congress who supports their ideology that Communism has ended in the world and the Congress has ended in India", Shah said. It's the Shah-in-Shah of Demo (netisation).

Sitaram Yechury, general secretary of the CPI (M), demanded further investigation in the case on Twitter.

The Aam Aadmi Party also demanded a high-level probe. "We outrightly reject the allegations and thus [they] should not be reproduced in a way that could be defamatory", Goyal said.
