New Delhi, April.5 (ANI): The Supreme Court on Tuesday adjourned the hearing on Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi’s plea seeking a stay on the Bombay High Court order, refusing to quash the defamation case against him over his remark on the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), till second week of May.

Gandhi had earlier urged the apex court to reject the defamation case filed against him by the RSS in March.

Gandhi’s counsel had earlier argued that there are several judgements and evidences that would prove that the defamation case filed against him was frivolous.

According to reports, Gandhi had also turned down the Supreme Court’s offer to express regret for his comment holding the RSS responsible for Mahatma Gandhi’s assassination and get the defamation case filed against him buried.
