The final report was filed before Metropolitan Magistrate Snigdha Sarwaria who took cognisance of the charge sheet and put up the matter for 15 October.

The four youths, identified as Sitanshu, Karan, Avinash and Amit, were booked on charges of stalking, criminal intimidation and intention to insult the modesty of a woman.

"I take cognisance of the offence as mentioned in the charge sheet. Considering the overall facts and circumstances of the cases, there is sufficient material on record to issue summons against the accused," the judge said, noting that the accused were on bail.

In April 2017, the drunk students allegedly followed Irani's car in Lutyens' Delhi, after which they were detained by the police.

Acting on the complaint, police intercepted the car in which the four youths were travelling. The students, in the age group of 18-19 years, had been detained at Chanakyapuri police station.

"Their medical examination has confirmed the presence of alcohol in their blood. They were returning from a friend's birthday party in south Delhi and were roaming in the area for fun," the police had said.
