A local court here has issued a summons against Bollyood actor Sanjay Dutt directing him to appear before it on March 22 in a case relating to alleged objectionable remarks against Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati.
Additional Chief Judicial Magistrate (ACJM) Arvind Mishra issued the summons for the second time against filmstar Sanjay Dutt yesterday asking him to appear before the court on the next date of hearing on March 22 after he failed to appear despite earlier instructions, prosecution sources said.
Dutt had reportedly made the allegedly objectionable remarks about Mayawati at a rally during Lok Sabha election campaign in Tikaitnagar in April last year.
The case was lodged against Dutt by the then station house officer Vinay Kumar Mishra.
The investigating officer later filed a chargesheet against the filmstar in ACJM's court, which directed Dutt to appear on February 22.
