Pawan Khera Tenders Unconditional Apology For Remarks Against PM Modi!

New Delhi: Assam chief minister Himanta Biswa Sarma on Friday claimed that Congress leader Pawan Khera has “tendered an unconditional apology” for his alleged objectional remarks against Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

“The majesty of law shall always prevail. The accused has tendered an unconditional apology (Para 7) We hope that keeping the sanctity of public spaces, no one will use uncivilized language in political discourse hereafter,” Sarma tweeted sharing a copy of the writ petition filed by Khera in the Supreme Court.

Sarma added that Assam Police will follow the matter to its logical end.

Khera was arrested by the Assam Police from the Delhi airport after being deplaned from a flight to Raipur on Thursday in connection with an FIR for his remarks against PM Modi at a press conference to demand an investigation by a Joint Parliamentary Committee (JPC) into allegations made by the US-based Hindenburg Research firm against the Adani Group.

He was booked under Sections 120 B (criminal conspiracy), 153 A, 153 B (1) (promoting enmity on grounds of religion, race, place of birth etc.), 500 (defamation), 504 (Intentional insult with intent to provoke breach of the peace), 505 (1) (2) (Statements conducing to public mischief) of the Indian Penal Code.

The Supreme Court later directed a Delhi court to grant interim bail to the Congress leader and also issued a notice to Assam, and Uttar Pradesh Police to club all the FIRs against him. He was released on a bail bond of Rs 30,000.
