THANE,
 
A CITY court on Tuesday asked Congress President Rahul Gandhi and CPM General Secretary Sitaram Yechury to appear before it on April 30 to respond to the charges of defaming RSS by allegedly linking it to journalist Gauri Lankesh’s murder.
 
The civil defamation case, seeking a token compensation of Rs one from Gandhi and Yechury was filed by RSS activist Vivek Champanerkar, who has claimed the duo “defamed” the RSS by linking it to the killing of Lankesh. Civil Judge J S Bhatia, who is hearing the case, ordered issuance of summonses to Gandhi and Yechury to appear in the court. The summonses are returnable on April 30.
