Rahul Gandhi gets bail over his murder accused remark against Amit Shah


Congress leader Rahul Gandhi was granted bail by a Gujarat court in the defamation case for calling Home Minister Amit Shah a “murder accused”, at an election rally in Jabalpur.

The court has given the next date of hearing on December 7.

Congress leader Rahul Gandhi arrived in Ahmedabad on Friday morning for appearing in local courts in connection with two criminal defamation suits filed against him.

After his arrival at the Ahmedabad airport, he went straight to city circuit house for a meeting with state Congress leaders.

Gandhi was greeted by NSUI and Congress workers at various points. Gandhi briefly alighted from his vehicle near Shahibaug to meet NSUI leaders.

The criminal defamation suit was filed against Rahul Gandhi for calling Union Home Minister Amit Shah a “murder accused”.

In May, another metropolitan magistrate had issued summons seeking Gandhi’s appearance in a defamation suit filed by BJP corporator Krishnavadan Brahmbhatt for calling Shah a “murder accused” at an election rally in Jabalpur.

Gandhi’s jibe was slanderous as Shah was acquitted in the Sohrabuddin Shaikh fake encounter case in 2015, the complainant said.

On Thursday, the Wayanad Lok Sabha MP had appeared before a court in Surat in yet another defamation case, and pleaded not guilty.

This case is over his remark “why do all thieves share the Modi surname”? made during a poll rally ahead of the Lok Sabha polls in April.
