Ranjit Savarkar, the grandson of Vinayak Damodar Savarkar, registered a complaint against Congress leader Rahul Gandhi for allegedly “insulting” the Hindutva ideologue, PTI reported. However, no FIR has been registered yet.
In a complaint lodged at Shivaji Park police station in Mumbai, Savarkar also demanded that Maharashtra Congress chief Nana Patole should be booked for “making similar statements”.
“No FIR has been registered. We are conducting further probe,” a police official told PTI.
Addressing a press conference at Wadegaon in Akola district during the party’s ‘Bharat Jodo Yatra’ earlier in the day, Rahul Gandhi accused Savarkar of helping the British and writing mercy petitions to them out of fear.
