Niira Radia files defamation suite against lawyer R K Anand

New Delhi, May 25: Corporate lobbyist, Niira Radia on May 25, sued R K Anand, a lawyer by profession on the grounds that he had defamed her.

Anand is accused of writing a book based on her alleged role in the 2G spectrum scam, titled 'Close encounter with Nira Radia'. The Delhi high court has stayed orders on the release and circulation of the book, which was to be released in Jun.

A case against Anand has been filed under Indian defamation law.

Radia in the book is described as a 'sprightly, bubbly and vivacious woman who at the age of 35 burst on to India"s political and business centre stage in the form of a whirling diva and whose every fervid gyration spun a web of cunning, duplicity and intrigue, ensnaring a veritable who"s who of those who run this nation"s business, political and journalistic empires."

The hearing for the case will be on Jul 22.
