The SC agreed to look at the former Congress President’s appeal of the Gujarat High Court’s decision not to grant a stay of execution for his conviction.

New Delhi, July 21: On Friday, the Supreme Court decided to consider Rahul Gandhi’s appeal against the Gujarat High Court’s decision to reject a stay of his conviction in the “Modi surname” defamation case. Rahul Gandhi had filed the appeal.


Justices B.R. Gavai and Prashant Kumar Mishra’s bench issued the notice about the subject of whether or not Gandhi’s conviction should be suspended.

Rahul Gandhi’s representative, senior attorney Abhishek Manu Singhvi, asked the court for an early hearing because Gandhi was unable to attend the current monsoon session of Parliament and the Election Commission could at any time proclaim a byelection for the Wayanad constituency.

Senior attorney Mahesh Jethmalani requested at least 10 days to help the court with the case’s legal and factual issues while representing the complaining BJP MLA in the defamation lawsuit.

The case was scheduled for hearing on August 4 by the court.
