In response to our report on Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi’s travel with a smuggling case accused Rajeev Agarwal, a legal notice was sent to us by the Agarwal brothers – Rajeev and Sanjay. While admitting the travel to Dubai with the Attorney General Rohatgi, the main contention of the notice was objection to terming them as smuggling accused. The legal notice is published at the end of this post.
The smuggling activities of Rajeev Agarwal and Sanjay Agarwal and their subsequent arrest by the Directorate of Revenue Intelligence (DRI) are detailed in a Delhi High Court Judgment. This judgment – Satya Prakash Bagla vs Sprint Services Pvt. Ltd. And Ors. on 11 January, 2002 is published below:
Our post is not about the case status of Rajeev Agarwal. Rather it is the optics of Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi travelling along with a smuggling case accused to Dubai. We stand by our report, and believe that telling the truth does not constitute defamation.
Below is a copy of the legal notice received:
