DMK also filed a complaint with the city police claiming that Stalin, son of party Treasurer and former Deputy Chief Minister M K Stalin, was falsely implicated by the complainant Ranga Reddy and demanded appropriate action against him.
In his complaint against former DMK minister Parithi Illamvazhuthy and others yesterday, Reddy had claimed his land was sold by the former minister's aides by forging documents and they told him the property was meant for Udhayanithi Stalin.
Alleging that Karunanidhi had extended support to Ilamvazhuthi and his aides thus preventing any action being taken against them, Reddy had sought action against the former chief minister and Udhayanithi Stalin also.
In the legal notice sent on his behalf, Stalin's advocates P Kumaresan and Hassan Mohammed Jinnah said their client was being accused by the complainant with an ulterior motive to defame him and cause mental harassment.
They said Stalin was not acquainted to Reddy and was never involved in any transaction as was being made out and charged him with trying to seek support of the ruling AIADMK and harass their client.
"Our client states that you have clear knowledge regarding his non-involvement in the said transaction and it is clear that the complaint has been preferred in order to gain political mileage," they said.
They demanded that Reddy withdraw the complaint and tender an unconditional apology besides giving a statement denying Stalin's involvement in the case within three days.
The notice said Stalin would initiate civil suit damages claiming Rs one crore and also criminal proceedings if no apology was tendered.
DMK Legal Wing Secretary R S Bharathi filed a police complaint demanding action against Reddy for "preparing a fabricated complaint," against Stalin.
