The complaint was filed by Joginder Tuli, an advocate practising in the Supreme Court, saying that Rahul had accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi of "hiding behind the blood of soldiers" and doing "dalali" on their sacrifice.

Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Samar Vishal sought the report from the Parliament Street Police by the next hearing on 15 May.

Advocate Tuli annexed a newspaper cutting, which published the news of Rahul's speech. The petitioner also alleged that he had approached the concerned police station, but no action was taken by the police.
