Filing Defamation Suit

Hello All!

My business rival has written a false email to clients and prospective clients in industry which says, that my setup / illegal and  we are corrupt in our dealings without any proof or talking with us. They also claimed that my employees are fraud.

I have a proof a that email which sent by them to one my client (my client gave me that email).

I have lost the significant business and i have been asked lot of questions by my clients in pipe line. 

How can file a defamation case them? An email writing about me, my employees and services undersigned by rival is enough proof?

Please Suggest!

Thanks Venkatesh

Yes, I contains my company name, my name and my partner name. Calling us fraud and warning client that dont take our services. I have lost almost 10 lacs of business because of this and the ofcourse reputation.


My partner used to work with them and quit on a good note and then joined me she brought a business to my company and now the rival is jealous coz they r loosing business. So they have written an email to all my clients.


Will that be enough to go claim a damages?

A tort of defamation is commited against u? You can look into thedefination under IPC as well?

For Tort file Civil suit for damages, assess your damages and pay fee. for criminal case file complaint.

For further clarification ask me.

You can undertake simulteneous civil (for claiming of loss suffered by you) and criminal proceedings (for his punishment).  Consult a lawyer in your area he will assist you.
