The legal notice further mentioned that the language, tone and tenor of the malicious remarks and threats as leveled and asserted against Dilip Ghosh and BJP by Mallick were not only unparliamentary but derogatory as well.
The irresponsible and distorted representation of unsubstantiated facts as sought to be publicly made by you has caused the loss, injury, prejudice and damages to Dilip Ghosh and Bharatiya Janata Party, for which you are responsible and accountable and can be prosecuted under the relevant laws of the land, it added.
