LEGAL NOTICE TO
CJP has, along with 1298 been running Ambulances for
underprivileged citizens of Mumbai thanks to donations received
from among others, world renowned musician Jethro Tull, Anoushka
Shankar and the Chatwals. The Chatwals donations was facilitated
by IM-Lakme through a fashion show MAI MUMBAI where Naomi
Campbell, the famous model ensured the contribution. The
selective and vile reportage by The Pioneer on 21.04.2014 shows
a selective and manipulated use of accounts/documents obtained
from the Ahmedabad Crime Branch. It reflects the newspapers poor
and motivated journalism and malafide intent.
