SC stays conviction
The Supreme Court on Friday (August 4) put a stay on conviction order of Rahul Gandhi. Earlier, the Gujarat High Court had upheld a Surat Court's order convicting the Congress leader in a criminal defamation case filed by BJP MLA Purnesh Modi and awarded him a two-year jail term, which led to his defamation as a Member of Parliament.
