FIR against Gandhis for hate speech: HC seeks Centre's response

Feb 28, 2020 17:03 IST

The Delhi High Court has sought the response of the Centre, the Delhi government and the police on multiple pleas seeking FIRs against political figures, including Congress leaders Sonia Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, for allegedly making hate speeches. One of the pleas by a lawyers' group has sought lodging of FIRs against the Congress leaders as well as Delhi's Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia, Aam Aadmi Party MLA Amanatullah Khan, AIMIM leader Akbaruddin Owaisi and former AIMIM MLA Waris Pathan for allegedly making hate speeches. The High Court bench has also issued notice to the Centre, the Delhi government and the police on three separate pleas which have sought FIRs against three BJP leaders for alleged hate speeches by them. All the matters have been listed by the court for further hearing on April 13.
