Officials from Uttar Pradesh on Friday visited the residence of BJP Lok Sabha candidate Varun Gandhi and handed over a copy of the CD containing his hate speech in Pilibhit.
The officials, who were accompanied by a team from Delhi Police, handed over the CD at the residence of his mother and former Union Minister Maneka Gandhi in New Delhi, where 29-year-old Varun stays.
The UP officials told reporters that they were on poll duty, but declined to give any details.
The Delhi Police team, however, did not enter the residential premises.
Varun's office, when contacted, said the officials had come to hand over a CD to the BJP candidate.
Varun had yesterday moved the Delhi High Court seeking anticipatory bail. Sources in the UP police said the onus of challenging the contents of the CD lay on Varun.
