Delhi police files ‘action taken report’ on plea against Rahul Gandhi for remarks on PM Modi
5/15/2019 3:23:59 PM

New Delhi | May 15

Delhi Police on Wednesday filed ‘Action Taken Report’ in the Rouse Avenue Court, on a criminal complaint seeking direction to the police to register an FIR under Section 124A (Sedition charges) against Congress president Rahul Gandhi for allegedly making derogatory statement against Prime Minister Narendra Modi in 2016.

The Delhi police in its statement said that as per the contents of the complaint, no cognizable offence is made out. It further said a defamatory suit may be filed by the individual against whom the statement was made.

This comes after a Delhi court last month directed the police to file an ‘action taken report’ on a plea seeking registration of FIR against the Congress

The complaint, filed by advocate Joginder Tuli, had sought direction to the police to register an FIR against Gandhi for making allegedly derogatory remarks in 2016 against PM Modi, accusing him of hiding behind the blood of soldiers and cashing in on their sacrifice.

He sought an FIR for obscenity, insulting a public figure and committing the act of sedition.

Addressing a public meeting in New Delhi on October 6, 2016, Rahul Gandhi had said, “You [Modi] are hiding behind the blood of soldiers in Jammu and Kashmir and those who carried out the surgical strikes for India. You are exploiting their sacrifices, which is very wrong.”

The remark came after the government claimed to have conducted pre-dawn surgical strikes across the Line of Control on “terror launchpads”. The strikes followed the Uri terror attack in Jammu and Kashmir in which 17 soldiers were killed.

The next date of hearing in the case is May 22.
