UNI reports that Assam finance and health minister Dr Himanta Biswa Sarma has filed a defamation lawsuit against ABPNews, seeking Rs 100 crore in damages. The channel had reported that income tax raids on a Delhi 'middleman' called Anuj Poddar had found a  link between him and the minister. Sarma tweeted that he was outraged that he was being linked to a man he had never known or met in his life.
