“We have filed the action taken report today in the court,” said Deputy Commissioner of Police, DCB while refusing to divulge further information. Sources said that the police filed a summary report, meaning that the prime minister has not committed any offence, and therefore a closure report has been filed.
DCB had registered an FIR against Modi as directed by the EC under Section 126 (1) (a) and 126 (1) (b) of the Representation of the People Act, 1951, and Section 188 of the Indian Penal Code.
The poll panel said it was “of the view that by holding that meeting… when the polling is going on in the entire state of Gujarat and in different parts of the country, Modi has violated the provisions of Sections 126 (1) (a) and 126 (l) (b) of the Representation of the People Act, 1951.”
