Delhi court grants bail to Shashi Tharoor over 'scorpion' remarks
Senior Congress leader Shashi Tharoor on Thursday appeared before the Rouse Avenue Court in connection with his 'scorpion over sitting on a shivling' remark case. The Court has granted bail to him on a personal bond of Rs 20,000. The matter will now be heard on July 25 for the recording of statement of the complainant and BJP leader Rajeev Babbar.
Babbar has alleged that Tharoor's remarks hurt his religious sentiments. Last year on October 28, Tharoor, quoting an unnamed Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) source, launched a sharp attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi likening him with a scorpion sitting on a 'shivling'.
