A Mumbai court issues a bailable warrant against Communist Party of India leader, Sitaram Yechury for not appearing in the court in a case related to aligning the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) for the murder of most high profile journalist Gauri Lankesh in 2017. The Mumbai metropolitan court has postponed the hearing of the case to April 30.

RSS worker and lawyer Shrutiman Joshi had filed a plea against Congress president Rahul Gandhi and Communist Party of India (Marxist) leader Sitaram Yechury for alleging RSS’ involvement in the murder of Karnatak journalist, Gauri Lankesh.

Sitaram Yechury has previously alleged the RSS’s ideology behind the murder and the men who killed Gauri Lankesh also belonged to RSS.

Shrutiman Joshi claimed that such allegations put a threat to the credibility of RSS and slander its position. He alleged the two, Rahul Gandhi and Sitaram Yechury for defaming the RSS and appealed to the court to file a case of criminal defamation against them under IPC section 500.

Rahul Gandhi claimed that he hasn’t received the summons yet and has asked for an inquiry against Mumbai’s Dadar Post office. The court granted him exemption till the next hearing on April 30.

Gauri Lankesh was an Indian journalist-turned activist from Bangalore, Karnataka. She worked as an editor in Lankesh Patrike and ran her own weekly called Gauri Lankesh Patrike. She wrote an article in which she accused the BJP workers of cheating a jeweler that brought her under conspiracies and speculations. She was shot dead on September 5, 2017, by three unidentified men at her house in Rajarajeshwari Nagar, Bangalore.
