Defamation case: Rahul Gandhi's plea seeking suspension of conviction dismissed by Surat Court

NEW DELHI: A Surat court dismissed Congress leader Rahul Gandhi’s plea seeking a stay on his conviction and sentence in a criminal defamation case over his “Modi surname” remark, made in 2019 during a poll rally.

Gandhi was convicted in the case lodged against him over a “how come all thieves have Modi as the common surname” remark made during an election rally in 2019. On March 23, he was sentenced to two years in jail by a metropolitan magistrate’s court in Surat. He, however, was granted bail so that he could file an appeal in the higher court.
Later, Gandhi filed an appeal before the sessions court in Surat against the verdict. He also prayed for a stay to the conviction in the meantime. (AGENCIES)
