Jaipur: A local court on Friday dismissed a complaint filed against Congress President Sonia Gandhi`s son-in-law Robert Vadra for his reported comment `mango man in banana republic` on a social networking site.

A Judicial Magistrate dismissed the complaint on the ground that it had no territorial jurisdiction to deal with it as the tweet was not made in his jurisdiction.

City-based lawyer A C Upadhyay had filed the complaint against Vadra in the Court of Metropolitan Magistrate here on October 11 and on October 18 it was taken cognisance by the court.

Upadhyay had sought action against Vadra under sections 121-A (sedition), 153-A (promoting enmity between different groups) and 500 and 501 (defamation) of IPC.
