Madni said he had hoped that Congress leader would realize his mistake and would seek apology but unfortunately he didn’t do so, leaving him (Madni) with no option other than to file the defamation suit.
He said that he formally submitted the defamation suit in the court of Principle District and Sessions Judge Anantnag against Bhat today.
