Muzaffarnagar: A local court has transferred a case against BJP president Amit Shah for allegedly violating the model of conduct by making "objectionable" speeches in 2014 in Muzaffarnagar to a Allahabad special court.

Police had already given a clean chit to Shah, but the court has not yet accepted the report as there was no reply from the complainant, the then assistant returning officer Ram Kumar, in the case, a prosecution lawyer said on Thursday.
