Hate speech: Plea for FIR against BJP leaders dismissed

One-liner: The Delhi HC on Monday dismissed a petition by CPI(M) leaders Brinda Karat and KM Tiwari challenging the trial court's refusal for an FIR against Union Minister Anurag Thakur and his BJP colleague and MP Pravesh Verma.

Anti-CAA protests: This is related to their alleged hate speeches concerning anti-CAA protests at Shaheen Bagh in Delhi.

Refused to interfere: Justice Chandra Dhari Singh, who had reserved the verdict on March 25, refused to interfere with the trial court's order.

Assailed: The petitioners had assailed the trial court order before the HC on the ground that a cognisable offence is made out against the two leaders in the present case.

Inciting people: The petitioners had claimed that Thakur and Verma had sought to incite people as a result of which three incidents of firing took place at two different protest sites in Delhi.
