The Police on Tuesday informed the Delhi High Court that required sanction to take Rajya Sabha member Subramanian Swamy for prosecution has been acquired.
“Sanction has been obtained from the competent authority. A draft chargesheet has also been prepared which will be filed soon. Now nothing remains in the matter. The petition has now become infructuous,” Delhi police submitted before the court.
A case was registered against Swamy and he was charged with writing an inflammatory article in 2011. The case was registered by Delhi Police on 3rd October 2011 under section 153-A of Indian Penal Code (IPC) which books Swamy for spreading enmity between communities.
‘National Commission for Minorities’ filed a complaint against the Rajya Sabha MP for an article he wrote in a Mumbai daily in July 2011 which allegedly seek annulment of the voting rights of Muslims.
Justice I.S. Mehta, hearing a plea by Swamy for the cancelation of the FIR, was told by the police that a draft charge sheet in the case was ready and would be filed soon.
