The summons was issued by the court of the Chief Judicial Magistrate (CJM) of Kamrup (Metro) district.
Bora, a Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS)volunteer, had filed the defamation suit against Rahul for allegedly tarnishing the image of the RSS by stating before media that he was not allowed to enter the Barpeta Satra, an institute, by RSS members in December last year.
Bora said that Rahul was supposed to visit the 15th century Satra on December 12 last year. But Rahul decided not to go to the Satra and instead took part in a public rally in Barpeta town.
Bora said that Rahul, however, told the media in New Delhi that he was stopped from entering the Satra by RSS members. Bora also said that RSS does not run the administration of the Satra and hence there was no way the RSS would have prevented Rahul.
