Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Samar Vishal framed defamation charges against all the three accused after they pleaded not guilty in the case.

In his complaint, Vivek Doval had said the magazine and Ramesh, who had held a press conference repeating the allegations leveled by the magazine, had attempted to 'deliberately malign and defame' him to 'settle scores with his father'.
