Pratapgarh court summons Sanjay Dutt in "jhappi-pappi" case

PTI - A local court today summoned Bollywood star Sanjay Dutt on April 24 in the case filed against him for his "jadoo ki jhappi and pappi" (magical hug and kiss) remark on Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati during last year's Lok Sabha elections.

Chief Judicial Magistrate Anirudh Kumar Tewari issued the summons for Dutt's appearance when the chargesheet filed in the case came up before the court.

The sub-inspector of police, who had investigated the FIR lodged in this connection on April 16, 2009 at the Nagar Kotwali against the actor, had filed the chargesheet before the CJM on March 18, prosecution sources said.
