The Ahmedabad Detection of Crime Branch has given clean chit to Prime Minister Narendra Modi in connection with the alleged violation of election rules on the voting day in the city during the Lok Sabha election on April 30.
Modi had taken a selfie with his party’s symbol in hand and addressed a press conference.
DCB had filed an FIR against Modi following orders from the Election Commission. On August 5, DCB had sought 15 days time for filing the report by a magisterial court. Three days later the DCB officials submitted the 100-page closure report.
“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.
