3 FIRs against a Cong leader have been transferred to Lucknow, and interim bail has been granted until April 10.

The Supreme Court shifted all three FIRs filed against Congress leader Pawan Khera in Uttar Pradesh and Assam to Lucknow on Monday and prolonged his interim bail until April 10 in a case involving his alleged offensive remarks about Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

The Supreme Court panel, which included Chief Justice D Y Chandrachud, Justices P S Narasimha, and K B Pardiwala, also ordered the Congress leader to appear in a Lucknow court to seek regular bail.

Khera was arrested at Delhi airport on February 23 by the Assam Police in connection with his alleged statements against Modi at a press conference in Mumbai on February 17. When calling for a joint parliamentary committee (JPC) investigation into the Gautam Adani Group, the Congress leader referred to the Prime Minister as “Narendra Gautamdas Modi.”

The Prime Minister’s full name is Narendra Damodardas Modi, with his father’s middle name. On February 17, Khera tweeted, “I’m not sure if it’s Damodardas or Gautam Das…”

Following the incident, the Supreme Court has repeatedly extended his bail. Two of the three FIRs were filed at Varanasi’s Cantonment police station and Lucknow’s Hazratganj police station. Assam has filed the third FIR.
