Similar complaint by Moitra 

The TMC MP on Monday filed a similar defamation case against the news channel and its Editor-in-Chief for alleging that her June 25 maiden  Lok Sabha speech on the ‘Seven Signs of Fascism’ was plagiarised.

Earlier this month, Moitra submitted a breach of privilege motion against Zee TV and its editor, however, Speaker Om Birla disallowed it.
