  • Supreme Court says regret remark, close defamation case; Rahul Gandhi says no

    Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi on Thursday turned down the Supreme Court’s suggestion to express regret over his remarks on Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh’s alleged involvement in Mahatma Gandhi’s assassination so as to give a “decent burial” to a defamation case pending against him. Representing Rahul, senior advocate Kapil Sibal told the Bench led by Justice Dipak Misra that he would rather argue the case on merits, based on records. Earlier, the Bench had sought Sibal’s response to a question on whether his client wanted to “close the chapter” by expressing regret over his comment, so that the court could then quash the criminal proceedings pending against him in a Maharashtra trial court.
