Compared her to dog: Rakhi Sawant files defamation complaint against friendtext_fields
Mumbai: Actor and model Rakhi Sawant on Saturday filed a criminal defamation complaint before the Andheri metropolitan magistrate in Mumbai, against her friend Rajashree Morey for making unsavoury remarks about her character.
The actor also alleged that Morey compared her to a dog and questioned her mental health.
In the complaint, Sawant sought action against Morey under Indian Penal Code sections 500 (defamation), 504 (intentional insults and provocation), 506 (criminal intimidation), and 509 (intending to insult the modesty of a woman).
Morey, who runs a nail art studio, had a tiff with Sawant, following which she allegedly made the comments at a press conference. The video of the same is available online, said Sawant's plea, filed through advocate Ali Kaashif Khan.
She blatantly implied and accused Sawant of being involved in prostitution and thus outraged her modesty in public, the plea stated.
The matter will be heard on November 6.
