Rahul Gandhi gets bail in Sushil Modi defamation case by Patna court
06 July, 2019
Former Congress President Rahul Gandhi was granted bail by a court in Patna on Friday in connection with a defamation case filed by Bihar’s deputy chief minister Sushil Kumar Modi over his statement that "all thieves have Modi in their surnames" at an election rally. 

Gandhi appeared before the Special MLA-MP court of Patna Justice Kumar Gunjan and pleaded innocence and said that all allegations labelled against him were false. The court asked him to submit two sureties of Rs 10,000 each for regular bail.

Speaking to reporters outside court, Rahul said "Whoever stands against RSS' and Narendra Modi ji's ideology is attacked, court cases are slapped. My fight is to save the Constitution, to stand for the poor & the farmers."

Rahul Gandhi had earlier tweeted "I will appear in person at the Civil Court in Patna today at 2 p.m., in yet another case filed against me by my political opponents in the RSS/BJP to harass and intimidate me. Satyameva Jayate,".

Addressing an election rally in Karnataka’s Kollkar in April, Gandhi, while referring to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, bank-fraud accused Nirav Modi and former Indian Premier League (IPL) commissioner Lalit Modi, had said, “I have a question. Why do all thieves have Modi in their names whether be it Nirav Modi, Lalit Modi, and Narendra Modi? We don’t know how many more such Modis will come out.”

Taking exception to a snide remark made by Gandhi, Bihar Deputy CM Sushil Kumar Modi had filed the case before the Chief Judicial Magistrate’s (CJM) court.
