This comes almost months after the Assam CM’s wife, Riniki Bhuyan Sarma, had filed a Rs 100 crore defamation suit against Sisodia at the civil court here.

Sarma had lodged a criminal defamation case against Manish Sisodia over allegations he made during a press conference linking Sarma’s wife Riniki Bhuyan Sarma in a corruption case in the supply of personal protection equipment in 2020 when there was a shortage of PPE kits in the
state.

Sarma was the health and family welfare minister in 2020 during the first BJP-led state government.
