Legal action for defamation

In response to these false accusations, Tandon has decided to press defamation charges against the journalist. A defamation notice, dated June 12, has been sent to the individual in question. Tandon’s lawyer, Sana Raees Khan, explained the situation: “Recently an attempt was made to embroil Raveena in a false and frivolous allegation which was clarified in CCTV footage and the allegation was withdrawn. However, a person, claiming to be a journalist, is disseminating false information on X regarding the said incident, which is factually incorrect and misleading. This dissemination of false news appears to be a deliberate attempt to tarnish Raveena’s reputation for ulterior motives.”

Defamation notice sent

Khan further emphasized the steps being taken to address the issue and ensure justice for Tandon. Despite requests to remove the defamatory video, the journalist has refused to comply. The legal team is now taking all necessary measures to protect Tandon’s reputation and seek redressal for the harm caused by these unfounded allegations.

Recognition for bravery

Amidst this turmoil, Tandon’s actions during the incident have not gone unnoticed. A source revealed that she is being recognized by various organizations for her bravery in protecting her driver, who was assaulted by the mob. A human rights organization has invited her to Delhi on August 31 to honour her courageous efforts.

Support and solidarity

The entertainment industry and fans continue to show their support for Raveena Tandon as she seeks justice. The actress remains steadfast in her resolve to clear her name and hold those responsible for spreading false information accountable.
