nDelhi Police on Wednesday submitted its report in a Delhi Court in which they said that Congress president Rahul Gandhi did not commit any cognisable offence. Earlier a complaint was filed against Rahul for using derogatory remark against Prime Minister  Narendra Modi.

The police report told the Rouse Avenue court that no “cognisable offence” was made out against Rahul Gandhi on a complaint against him in 2016.

In an action taken report (ATR) which was submitted before Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Samar Vishal, the police said Gandhi allegedly made the defamatory statement against the Prime Minister for which a suit may be filed.  It told the court that “no police action was made out”.

“As per the contents of the complaint no cognisable offence is made out. Rahul Gandhi made the defamatory statement against PM Narendra Modi for which a defamatory suit may be filed by the individual against whom the statement was made,” the police said in the action taken report.

The court had on April 26 directed the police to file an ATR on a plea seeking registration of FIR against the Congress president. The complaint, filed by advocate Joginder Tuli, has sought direction to the police to register an FIR against Gandhi for allegedly making derogatory remarks in 2016 against PM Modi, accusing him of hiding behind the blood of soldiers and cashing in on their sacrifice.
