Mr Rawal, district guardian minister of Dhule in north Maharashtra, today said he has been hurt by the allegations and decided to take serious note of it.
"The allegations are completely baseless. But I have decided to take legal action against Malik. I will file a defamation suit against him," Mr Rawal told PTI.
When asked about Mr Rawal's threat of filing a defamation suit against him, the NCP leader said, "I welcome Rawal's decision to prosecute me. I will provide all the documents before the court in support of my allegations."
Making a sensational claim, Mr Malik had alleged that Mr Rawal was also involved in "grabbing" the land belonging to former President Pratibha Patil in north Maharashtra.
