A local court served notices to four persons, including Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi, in connection with a case registered under the Motor Vehicles’ Act on Tuesday.

The notice was issued by an appellate court after an advocate Avadhesh Tomar filed a revision petition in the matter. The case will be heard in the sessions court on March 18.

In the run-up to the 2004 Lok Sabha elections, Rahul had campaigned for Congress candidate from Gwalior Ashok Singh perched on the roof of his SUV.

Police had registered a case against him and three more persons for violation of the Motor Vehicles’ Act. The amount of penalty imposed on the Gandhi scion in the case had been paid but Tomar went in an appeal against the lower court order on the ground that the police had not investigated the matter.
