The News article published on the news magazine “The Caravan” with the caption “The Believer” Swami Aseemanand’s radical service to the Sangh. by LEENA GITA REGHUNATH dt. February 1, 2014 is a bundle of lies. The article is a clear cut example of a larger conspiracy to interfere in administration of justice and design to violate the human rights and the interests of an under trial prisoner. The undersigned is the Defence Counsel representing Nab Kumar Sarkar @ Swami Aseemanand. After verification from the above said Nab Kumar Sarkar @ Swami Aseemanand and under his instructions I hereby clarify that the contents of the article are false, baseless and concocted. My client denies to have given any such interview. The whole story is a complex work of ill- motivated delibrate design to malign the reputation of my client. Swami Aseemanand emphatically denies to have had any close door meeting with senior leaders of the alleged social organization in year 2005 or afterwards. Swami Aseemanand challenges the correspondent to prove the truth of the allegations or apologize forthwith, failing which my client intends to take all legal actions against the magazine and the correspondent.
