Congress leader Pawan Kheda’s review petition dismissed in the comment case on Prime Minister Modi’s father

An MP/MLA court here on Thursday dismissed the review petition of Congress spokesperson Pawan Khera in the case of alleged derogatory remarks against Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s father.

The revision petition was filed against the order passed by the Chief Judicial Magistrate (CJM), Lucknow on January 5, 2024. The CJM court had refused to give a clean chit to Kheda in the case.

MP/MLA court special judge Harbans Narayan passed the order dismissing Kheda’s petition. The respondent argued before the court that Kheda had mentioned the name of Prime Minister Modi’s father as “Narendra Gautam Das Modi” instead of “Damodar Das Mulchand Modi”.

The court was informed that FIRs were lodged in this regard at Cantt police station in Varanasi and Hazratganj police station in Lucknow on February 20, 2023. Apart from these, an FIR was also registered in this regard at Haflong police station in Assam on February 22, 2023.

The court was informed that the FIRs lodged in various police stations were challenged by Kheda in the Supreme Court and the apex court had on March 20, 2023 transferred all the FIRs registered in the case to the Hazratganj police station in Lucknow.

The police filed a chargesheet against Kheda in the court of CJM, Lucknow. The MP/MLA court was also informed that Kheda had also filed a petition before the Lucknow bench of Allahabad High Court to quash the chargesheet and FIR. The MP/MLA court took cognizance of the case being pending in the High Court and did not grant any relief to Kheda.
