Varun Gandhi

March 20, 2009

BJP Lok Sabha candidate Varun Gandhi on Friday filed his reply to the Election Commission’s notice in connection with his alleged anti-Muslim speeches, three days after the poll panel issued notice to him.

Lawyers of 29-year-old Varun filed the reply on Friday morning to the notice served on him by the EC for making speeches that had communal overtones during his rallies in Pilibhit in Uttar Pradesh.

His lawyers, however, refused to give details about the reply.

Meanwhile, the Delhi High Court on Friday granted interim bail to Varun Gandhi in a criminal case of making communal remarks in a speech during a rally at Pilibhit. In case of his arrest, he shall be immediately released on bail on the condition that he pays personal surety of Rs 50,000.

The order, passed by Justice Reva Khetrapal, will be applicable till March 27, the next date of hearing.

Appearing for Varun, senior advocate Sidharth Luthra said since Varun apprehended arrest in Delhi, he had come to the high court. His client required protection till his application was taken up by the Allahabad High Court for quashing the FIR in the coming week.
