New Delhi: BJP leader Varun Gandhi against whom FIR was lodged for making inflammatory communal speeches during election campaign in Uttar Pradesh, on Friday withdrew his bail plea from the Delhi high court.
The counsel appearing for 29-year-old politician submitted before the court that Varun seeks to withdraw the petition in view of Allahabad high court’s order dismissing his plea for quashing criminal proceedings for making speech.
Justice Reva Khetrapal accepted his plea and allowed him to withdraw the petition.
“Without going into maintainability issue and in the merit of the case, the petition is dismissed as withdrawn,” the court said.
With this, the stay on his arrest granted by the court on 20 March stands vacated.
