UP court admits case against Chidambaram

Lucknow, March 3 (IANS) A Maharajganj court has admitted a complaint against former union home minister P. Chidambaram for his alleged remarks that Parliament House attack accused Afzal Guru was not given a proper hearing before he was executed.

Lawyer Vinay Kumar Pandey in his complaint pointed to media reports wherein the senior Congress leader was quoted on the matter.

The petitioner also said that Chidambaram’s statement that Jawaharlal Nehru University student leaders were not anti-national but had acted stupidly was also enough to take action against him.

Afzal Guru was executed on February 9, 2013, in the Tihar Central Jail in Delhi in the Parliament House attack case of 2001.

The court has fixed April 11 as the next date of hearing in the case.
