Rahul Gandhi`s fallacy entraps him in RSS defamation case, charges under IPC 499, 500 framed

Congress chief Rahul Gandhi has got a massive setback from Bhiwandi Court in a criminal defamation case filed by a Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) functionary Rajesh Kunte.

The case was filed against Rahul after he said – at a rally in Bhiwandi in 2014 – that the RSS was involved in the assassination of Mahatma Gandhi. Now today, the Bhiwandi Court has framed the charges under section IPC 499 and 500 against Rahul Gandhi. Meanwhile, Rahul Gandhi pleaded not guilty and that’s why now further he has to prove his point.
The local RSS functionary Rajesh Kunte had filed the defamation suit against Rahul Gandhi for his statement accusing RSS of Mahatma Gandhi’s assassination during an election speech in 2014 in Bhiwandi. Kunte said that the Rahul Gandhi’s alleged statement hurt the feelings of thousands of Swayamsevaks and harmed the reputation of the RSS.

In a dramatic move, lawyers of Rajesh Kunte submitted the true copy of the affidavit signed by Rahul Gandhi in which he has supposedly accepted the allegations made by the RSS functionary. Rahul’s lawyer team got annoyed with this surprising move and in the frenzy refused to accept that it was ‘the’ document which has been submitted by Rahul in the Bombay HC.
