Gujarat Court orders inquiry into Rahul Gandhi’s ‘murder accused’ comment against Amit Shah after complaint

On Wednesday, another complaint was filed against Rahul Gandhi for failing to mention in his election affidavits that he had received summons related to a defamation case.

Rahul Gandhi had recently called BJP President Amit Shah ‘murder accused’ during an election rally at Jabalpur, Madhya Pradesh. A defamation complaint was filed against the Congress President for his ostensibly false remark on Wednesday.

Now, a metropolitan court in Gujarat on Friday has ordered an inquiry into the matter on the basis of the complaint filed by BJP’s Khadia councillor Krishnavadan Brahmbhatt, DNA has reported. The Court will decide on the 30th of April on whether to take cognizance of the complaint or not.

“Thereafter, the court recorded the deposition of Brahmbhatt and two of his witnesses—Jigesh Dani and Umang Naik—in the case and adjourned the hearing till April 30, when it will decide on whether to take cognizance in the case and issue summons to Gandhi, or not,” Brambhatt’s lawyer Prakash Patel told DNA.

A host of lawsuits have been filed against Rahul Gandhi in recent times for false comments he has made in public. Not long ago, he was forced to apologize before the Supreme Court over his comments where he had claimed that the highest court of the country had said ‘Chowkidar Chor Hai’.

In another defamation complaint that was filed against the Congress President by the RSS for his comments that the saffron organization was responsible for the murder of Mahatma Gandhi, he made a U-Turn in the Court and claimed that he had never said such a thing and asserted that his comments had been misinterpreted.

On Wednesday, another complaint was filed against Rahul Gandhi for failing to mention in his election affidavits that he had received summons related to a defamation case.
