The police on Tuesday informed the Delhi High Court that the necessary sanction to prosecute Rajya Sabha member Subramanian Swamy in a case lodged against him on charge of writing an inflammatory article in 2011 has been obtained.

The Delhi Police had, on October 3, 2011, registered the case under Section 153-A (spreading enmity between communities) of the Indian Penal Code against Swamy.

The case was registered on a complaint from the National Commission for Minorities for writing the article in a Mumbai daily in July 2011, which allegedly sought revocation of the voting rights of Muslims.

Justice I.S. Mehta, hearing a plea by Swamy for quashing the FIR, was told by the police that a draft charge sheet in the case was ready and would be filed soon.
