A magistrate court in Sewri has rejected the plea of Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha head Tejinder Singh Tiwana to order a probe on Maharashtra Congress chief Nana Patole in a criminal defamation complaint he filed before the court.

Tiwana had approached the court taking objection to Patole's remarks on PM Narendra Modi while speaking to a group of villagers in Bhandara last month. Patole had said he could ‘beat Modi, abuse him’.

He had later clarified that the “Modi’ he referred to is a local goon and not the PM.
