Defamation case: RaGa appears before a magistrate’s court in Surat

(G.N.S) Dt. 24


To record final statement in a criminal defamation suit filed by a Gujarat MLA over the former’s remark on the “Modi surname”, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi appeared before a magistrate’s court in Surat.

BJP legislator from Surat Purnesh Modi had filed a complaint against Gandhi in April 2019 under IPC Ssections 499 and 500, that deal with defamation.

Some days ago, Surat’s Chief Judicial Magistrate A N Dave directed Gandhi to remain present in the court on June 24 to record his final statement in the case. In his complaint, the MLA had alleged that Gandhi defamed the entire Modi community by saying “How come all the thieves have Modi as the common surname?” while addressing a poll rally in 2019.
