Gautam Gambhir on Thursday night sent a defamation notice to AAP leaders Atishi Marlena, Arvind Kejriwal and Manish Sisodia,Atishi Marlena, denyinh any relation to the alleged pamphlet and/or deplorable contents.
In the defamation notice, he asked the AAP leaders to withdraw all the statement made against him in the matter and demanded an unconditional and unqualified apology for defaming him with the false and baseless allegation.
However, on Friday, AAP East Delhi candidate Atishi Marlena filed a complaint with Delhi Commission of Women against the cricketer-turned-politician further alleging that the latter had distributed derogatory pamphlets about Marlena.
Speaking to ANI, she has also said that they (AAP) will file a complaint about the same at the Election Commission and Delhi Police.
On Thursday, AAP held a conference wherein they made allegations against Gautam Gambhir of distributing pamphlets with derogatory comments against Marlena. The AAP candiate broke down during the conference blaming Gambhir for stooping to new levels.
