New Delhi: Rashtrapati Bhawan has filed a complaint with Delhi Police against former IPL Commissioner Lalit Modi for posting “defamatory” tweets against President Pranab Mukherjee and his Secretary Omita Paul.
The complaint sent to Delhi Police Commissioner B.S. Bassi from the President’s Secret-ariat has screen shots of June 23 and June 25 tweets annexed to it, besides an 80-page file that the former IPL chief, being probed by the Enforcement Direct-orate for alleged money laundering, had attached to his twitter posts.
The document shows a picture of the President, his secretary and businessman Vivek Nagpal, who Modi alleged, had taken favours from Mukherjee during his days in the finance ministry.

Mr Bassi has forwarded the complaint to the Economic Offences Wing (EoW) of Delhi Police for necessary action, official sources said, adding no case has been registered so far....
