NEW DELHI: A Delhi court Wednesday reserved order on whether to frame defamation and other charges against Congress leader Shashi Tharoor on a complaint over his alleged ‘scorpion’ remarks referring to Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Samar Vishal, after hearing arguments from Tharoor’s counsel and senior advocate Salman Khurshid, said he will pass order on August 27.
During the arguments on Wednesday, the counsel said that the complaint was not maintainable.
He said Delhi BJP leader Rajeev Babbar, who has filed the complaint, was not an aggrieved party since the remarks were made against the Prime Minister. (AGENCIES)
