Maharashtra Court Defers Hearing On Defamation Case Against Rahul Gandhi To June 29

A Thane court, Maharashtra on Saturday has posted the hearing in the defamation case filed against Congress leader Rahul Gandhi to June 29.

Gandhi’s counsel advocate Narayan Iyer told media that, when the matter came up for hearing during the day in the magistrate’s court in Bhiwandi, an adjournment was sought on the ground that a writ petition filed by the applicant was pending in the High Court and no order had been delivered on it as yet.

Iyer stated, after hearing both parties, the magistrate posted the matter for hearing on June 29.

The defamation case was been filed by local RSS member Rajesh Kunte claiming Gandhi in a speech had linked the organisation to the assassination of Mahatma Gandhi.
