Patna Court stayed proceedings before a trial court against Rahul Gandhi

Today, the Patna High Court stayed the proceedings before a trial court against former Congress president Rahul Gandhi in connection with the "Modi' remake. The bench headed by Justice Sandeep Kumar stayed the proceedings while hearing a petition from Gandhi.

During the trials, the bench said that since he has already been convicted in a similar case by a Gujarat court, he cannot be put on trial for the same offence again.

"The high court has stayed trial proceedings till May 15, the date on which we will be submitting our reply to the petition," said S D Sanjay, the counsel for former Bihar deputy chief minister and senior BJP leader Sushil Kumar Modi.

The Congress leader has been awarded two years in prison by a court in Surat, where BJP MLA Purnesh Modi had sued him for defamation for having made the snide remark against Prime Minister Narendra Modi, fugitive defaulter Nirav Modi and former IPL commissioner Lalit Modi.

The sentence awarded by the Surat court has also led to the disqualification of Gandhi, who represented Kerala's Wayanad seat in the Lok Sabha.
