Pay Rs 1000 to Rahul Gandhi for seeking adjournment: Court tells complainant

RSS activist Rajesh Kunte had moved an application seeking adjournment, which Judicial Magistrate First Class (JMFC) JV Paliwal rejected and imposed Rs 1,000 cost on him.

Rahul Gandhi's counsel Narayan Iyer said the court fixed May 10 as the next date of hearing when the complainant will be examined.

In 2014, the RSS activist had in 2014 filed the defamation case against Congress leader for alleging the right-wing organisation of being behind the killing of Mahatma Gandhi.

Kunte had claimed that this statement slandered the reputation of the RSS. In 2018, a court in Thane had framed charges against Gandhi in the case, but he had pleaded not guilty to the charges. PTI
