The Supreme Court on Tuesday, February 13 quashed the criminal defamation complaint against Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) leader Tejashwi Yadav after he retracted certain remarks that were purportedly aimed to defame Gujaratis. The court passed the order in response to Yadav's plea to relocate the defamation trial to a court situated outside of Gujarat. Last year in March, Yadav reportedly made a contentious statement regarding Gujaratis, that triggered political debate across the country. Following the incident, a criminal defamation complaint was filed by Haresh Mehta, who serves as the vice president of an organization known as the All India Anti-Corruption and Crime Preventive Council. However, in January, Yadav told the top court in an affidavit that he had withdrawn the remarks made by him about Gujaratis.
