New Delhi, Nov 9 (UNI) The Vishwa Hindu Parishad today slapped a legal notice on a Delhi-based national daily for portraying it in a poor light in the ongoing Malegaon blasts probe.
Calling the news false, baseless, defamatory, the right-wing outfit also sought an unspecified amount of damages from the daily. The daily carried on its front page a piece of news ''Terror net widens to Gujarat VHP'' today.
The legal notice, a copy of which is available with UNI, reads, ''the news had a wrong headline only to catch the readers' eye with mala fide intentions and to send a wrong message that the VHP is linked to the Malegaon blasts.'' ''Associating the name of VHP with the Malegaon blasts is false, baseless and defamatory,'' the notice reads further, asking the newspaper to publish an unqualified apology within 15 days or face a defamation suit otherwise.
