Trinamool Congress supremo Mamata Banerjee's nephew and the party's Diamond Harbour constituency candidate Abhishek Banerjee on Saturday sent a defamation notice to Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Referring to Modi's May 15 rally which took place in the constituency, the legal notice, served by his lawyer, said: "...the malice with which you chose to invoke certain unverified, sensationalist and patently inaccurate information, ostensibly at the behest of your party members, even while knowing such information to be incorrect, has compelled my client to address you vide this letter."

"Your speech, punctuated by false, malicious, and defamatory content, was an embodiment of political calculation and mischievous intent."

According to the notice, the Diamond Harbour incumbent MP sought an "unconditional apology" within 36 hours from the Prime Minister.
