Varun summoned in reopened hate case in Pilibhit

Fri, Jul 08, 2016, 03:30 PM
A court in Pilibhit has issued notice to BJP MP Varun Gandhi, asking him to appear in court in connection with a 2009 hate speech case. The notice was sent to Varun on Thursday by District Judge Kautilya Kumar Gaur through the Lok Sabha Speaker, as he did not appear in the court. The court fixed September 30 as the next date of hearing.

After Varun was acquitted in a 2009 hate speech case in 2013, a social worker Asad Hayat had challenged the order in the district court, after which summons were sent to him, but he did not appear in court.

Varun had allegedly made inflammatory comments against a particular community in his speeches at public meetings in Pilibhit during the 2009 Lok Sabha election campaign.

Varun is tipped to be chief ministerial material if the BJP wins the next assembly elections in UP.
