Bihar YouTuber opposes Rs 500 crore defamation notice by Akshay Kumar

Mumbai: YouTuber Rashid Siddiquee has opposed the defamation notice issued against him by actor Akshay Kumar in connection with Sushant Singh Rajput death case and refused to pay Rs 500 crore damages sought by the star, saying there was nothing defamatory in his videos.

Siddiquee has also urged Akshay Kumar to withdraw the notice, failing which he would initiate “appropriate legal proceedings” against the actor.

Kumar had on November 17 issued a defamation notice against Siddiquee seeking Rs 500 crore in damages for making “false and baseless allegations” against him in Rajput’s death case.

Kumar, in the notice sent through law firm I C Legal, said Siddiquee in his YouTube channel has published several “defamatory, libelous and derogatory” videos.

Siddiquee, in his reply sent through his advocate J P Jayswal on Friday, said the allegations made by Akshay Kumar were “false, vexatious and oppressive and is raised with an intent to harass him”.

It added that following the death of Sushant Singh Rajput, several independent reporters, including Siddiquee, covered the news as many influential people were involved and other prominent media channels were not providing correct information.

The reply further claimed that every Indian citizen has the fundamental right to freedom of speech.
