Advocate Alakh Alok Srivastava appearing on behalf of Bagga said, “Swati had tweeted a derogatory and defamatory tweet. Today, the court has allowed them (Bagga) to record his pre-summoning evidence which the court has accepted. The court has set 9th October as the date to hear their arguments. Following that, the court may issue summons to Swati as an accused.”

He further added that upon issuance of summons, and if found guilty, Chaturvedi could be punished under the Indian Penal Code.

Swati Chaturvedi’s foul-mouthedness is not new. She has previously also tweeted abusive things to people who don’t agree with her. She is also known to have filed fake stories and targeted harassment.
