Yes you can file a defamation suit before civil court. you can also challenge the termination too before labour court.

Will you be able to establish that enquiry was after your termination? More important is to check if there was any breach of terms and conditions of employment. If so than first you think of getting compensation. For defamation check if you have sufficient documents or witnesses. Normally in such cases success rate is low.

Do not file such a suit without setting aside of your termination as u say without inquiry u r terminated. After court order in your favour you are automatically relieved and it will take less time to fight your case.

You can certainly file for defamation, but whether or not you will succeed in your legal pursuit will depend on whether you will be able to prove that your termination was illegal. 

Alternatively, you can challenge your termination before a court of law.
