Madhya Pradesh chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan’s brother-in-law Sanjay Singh Masani on Saturday accused Vyapam scam whistleblower Anand Rai for allegedly maligning his image on the social media with defamatory remarks.

Masani reportedly has issued a legal notice to Rai asking him to retract from all his statements and has sought a public apology within 15 days.

“Anand Rai has defamed me by posting several tweets making several fake accusations and allegations against me. He alleged that I get the benefit for being the brother-in-law of the CM. He also alleged in his tweets that I possess black money and have invested it in the film industry,” Masani said at a press conference in Bhopal.

Mumbai high court advocate, who is the counsel of Masani, Rajesh D Bindra said, “Rai has made false and reckless allegations to harm my client’s reputation…A notice has been served to Rai to retract all his statements, allegations, accusations and imputations made by him on twitter as well as on television within 15 days from the date of receipt of this notice and also to address a written public apology, failing which my client shall initiate legal action.”
