Zohal Hameed's lawyer Rajnish Chopra has been quoted as saying to reporters, "We have sent a notice to him (Sid Mallya) over defamation, we demand an apology." He has demanded strict action against Junior Mallya for his tweet and an unconditional apology.
Friday's tweet by Sidhartha Mallya read, "The girl who is accusing Luke of hitting her fiance was all over me last night. If he was her fiance, she wasn't exactly behaving like a future wife." The tweet was also loaded with expletives that have apparently not gone down well with the US national who have had to face insult over injury.
More details awaited.
