Sir the allegations by complainant is as follows...
....He filed the complaint against me under section 499/500 saying that i have tried to defame his name by showing the money transaction as the illegal gratification taken by him and published the same in the manner of writing (although it was done in good faith and also the same was not mentioned in my written statement and rejoinder)

By mistake I have written that. The fact is that I have mentioned the same in my written statement and the rejoinder. But if according to you the communication to the court by way of pleading or argument does not lead to defamation then how the junior court has issued the process and sent me summons, and how the trial court taken up the case on the board. if that happens mechanically then what is the way to convey the same to the court. what is the way out??

Any communication to the Court by way of pleadings or arguments does not qualify for defamation. CAN YOU PLEASE HELP ME WITH SOME OF THE JUDGEMENTS OF THE HIGH COURTS/SUPREME COURT IN THIS MATTER TO DEFEND MY CASE.
