17th October 2020
The Delhi HC on Friday stayed the criminal proceeding against Shahshi Tharoor in a defamation case regarding a remark made by him “scorpion on shivling” referring to the Prime Minister Modi.
The complaint against him was filed in the trial court by Babber claiming how the remark made by the congress leader hurt his religious sentiments, on which Tharoor was granted bail in June last year.
The High Court listed the said matter for further hearing on the 9th of December.
