HYDERABAD: Allu Aravind, film producer and brother-in-law of actor turned politician Chiranjeevi, on Monday filed a defamation petition for Rs 10 crore against actor couple Rajasekhar and Jeevitha and their follower Harikrishna Goud, who earlier alleged that large scale irregularities took place in Chiranjeevi's blood bank and charitable trust.
Aravind filed the defamation petition against the actor couple and their follower in the 17th Additional Chief Metropolitan Sessions Court in Nampally criminal court complex. Aravind's counsel Malla Rao said the actor couple and Harikrishna gave interviews to TV news channels on August 9 and 14, 2010 alleging that Chiranjeevi's Charitable Trust which got Rs 14.5 lakh from the state government for the blood bank maintenance, was selling a unit of blood at Rs 850. He said the defamation petition for Rs 10 crore was filed against the actor couple and Harikrishna for making baseless allegations against the blood bank, charitable trust and also Aravind. Rajasekhar and Jeevitha did not respond to the legal notices sent by Aravind on March 3, 2011.
Harikrishna abused Aravind for serving the notice. The court recorded Aravind's statement in this regard. The court posted the hearing on the petition to December 15.
