Varun Gandhi acquitted in Hate Speech Cases
BJP MP from Pilibhit, Varun Gandhi has been acquitted in two separate cases of hate speech, which was allegedly given by him during the 2009 general elections. He was acquitted in the first case on February 27. He also got a clean chit in the second case on March 5.
Varun Gandhi had to spend 19 days in jail for allegedly inciting communal passion through his speech. Since the news channels failed to furnish the original, unedited footage to the police, nothing could be proved against Varun Gandhi. Mr. Gandhi had refused to submit his voice sample to the police.
The first speech was given in Dalchand Colony in Pilibhit, while the second speech was given in Barkheda.
