Court Summons Sanjay Dutt For ‘Jaadu Ki Jhappi’ To Mayawati


Lucknow: A court in Uttar Pradesh has issued summons for allegedly taking a swipe at BSP chief Mayawati during campaigning for the 2009 Lok Sabha elections.

It is to be noted that Sanjay Dutt had enthralled the audience with his famous ‘jaadu ki jhappi’ remark while campaigning for a Samajwadi Party candidate in April 2009.

Addressing a huge gathering of supporters and fans, Dutt had then allegedly said that he would like to give one to BSP chief Mayawati.

The summons was issued by Additional Chief Judicial Magistrate Sanjay Yadav on Wednesday. The court even asked the actor to appear before it on November 16.

In its order, the court asked the Mumbai Commissioner to serve the summons to the actor, prosecution officer Ramesh Chand Kannaujia said.

Dutt had famously made the remark on April 19, 2009, while campaigning for the Samajwadi Party nominee in Tikaitnagar area of the district.
