New Delhi, Oct 30: Mahatma Gandhi’s great-grandson Tushar Gandhi on Monday tweeted asking the Supreme Court to note that “I am Tushar Arun Manilal Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi” after the top court asked him to explain his locus standi in opposing the reopening of Mahatmas assassination case.
“Bapu’s murderers have launched a campaign to falsify circumstances of his murder, a pathetic attempt to cleanse his blood from their hands,” Tushar wrote on the mirco-blogging site.
He also posted a picture of the coverpage of his 2007 book “Let’s Kill Gandhi: A Chronicle of His Last Days, the Conspiracy, Murder, Investigation and Trial”, reiterating to the Supreme Court to note that it was “my locus standi” with regard to the case.
“I am Tushar Arun Manilal Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi. My Locus Standi, Supreme Court, please note,” he posted in another tweet.
The series of tweets came after a bench of Justices S.A. Bobde and M.M. Shantanagoudar questioned his locus in opposing a plea seeking to reopen the 70-year-old assassination case.
Senior advocate Indira Jaising, appearing for Gandhi, said she will explain the locus if the court moves ahead with issuing of notice.
