Anil drops Rs 10,000cr defamation suit against Mukesh
In a further effort to consolidate their new-found brotherhood, Anil Ambani, head of the Reliance Anil Dhirubhai Ambani Group, withdrew the Rs 10,000-crore defamation suit filed in the Bombay high court against once-estranged elder brother and head of Reliance Industries Ltd (RIL), Mukesh Ambani. The matter was heard by Justice Roshan Dalvi.
Anil had filed the defamation suit against Mukesh in 2008, seeking damages after the latter’s comments were published in The New York Times. Anil had alleged that comments attributed to Mukesh, quoted in a June 15, 2008 article, were false, defamatory, malicious and totally baseless.
