Arrest warrant against journalist in defamation suit filed by Adani Group

Freelance journalist Ravi Nair has been served an arrest warrant by the Delhi Police in connection with a criminal defamation filed against him by Adani Group.

The 44-year-old, known for his extensive coverage of the Rafale deal, has been asked to appear before a court in Gandhinagar.

“Govt-supported oligarchs, who are neck-deep in corruption and hand-in-glove with the ruling dispensations in siphoning off the public money in the name of so-called “nation building”, can’t silence the truth through SLAPPS suits. Hum dekhenge :)” Nair tweeted.

Nair further said to The Wire that he was not served any prior summons nor was he given any copy of the complaint.

He said he wasn’t told which story or social media post had prompted the criminal defamation.
