Congress president Rahul Gandhi has sought an extension of 10 days to reply to a show-cause notice issued by the Maharashtra State Commission for Protection of Child Rights for tweeting a video on June 15 of two minor boys being beaten up and paraded naked in Jalgaon.

On June 19, Amol Jadhav, a resident from Chirabazar, wrote an application to the Commission seeking to “initiate action against Mr. Gandhi”.
