Kolkata: The City Sessions Court, on Wednesday, has sent notice to national BJP
president Amit Shah instructing him to appear before the court.
Trinamool Youth Congress president Abhishek Banerjee had filed a defamation case
against Amit Shah earlier on Wednesday. Based on the case filed, the court has sent
summons to Shah.
Sanjay Basu, Abhishek’s lawyer, said through a press note that the chief metropolitan magistrate of Kolkata’s city sessions court has asked Amit Shah to be present, in person, at the court by September 28.

Neither BJP nor the saffron party responded to the notice. Following this, a case was filed against him.
