Anti-Modi case fails
NEW DELHI: India’s Supreme Court yesterday threw out a case brought by an anti-corruption lawyer that accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi of accepting suspicious cash payments, dealing a blow to an opposition leader who had latched on to the case.
A panel of judges found that there was too little evidence to go on, deflating Rahul Gandhi’s warnings late last year that he would cause an “earthquake” by unveiling proof that Modi was corrupt. Modi was chief minister of the state of Gujarat at the time. – Reuters
