Jalandhar: The police have registered a case against Mahatma Gandhi's great-grandson, Tushar Gandhi, for allegedly making offensive remark about freedom fighter Bhagat Singh.

"The case was registered against Gandhi under Section 295 (A) (deliberate and malicious acts, intended to outrage religious feelings of any class) of the IPC after a complaint by chairman of an NGO Jan Jagriti Manch, Kishan Lal," Bimal Kant, Inspector at Jalandhar Police Commisionerate, said on Sunday.

It was alleged that Tushar Gandhi, while speaking to the media in Jaipur earlier, had said that “Mahatma Gandhi did not intervene in Bhagat Singh's death sentence as the freedom fighter was a criminal for the British rulers.”

Members of the NGO had submitted a memorandum to the Police Commissioner on Saturday demanding a case against the Mahatma's great-grandson.
