Barabanki: A local court here today directed the Mumbai police commissioner to serve summons to filmstar Sanjay Dutt, who failed to appear before it in derogatory remarks case.

Additional Chief Judicial Magistrate Arvind Mishra also fixed August 30 as the next date of hearing in the case, prosecution sources said.

Dutt allegedly made derogatory remarks against Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati during a Samajwadi Party rally in Tikaitnagar area during the Lok Sabha polls last year.

Dutt, the then Samajwadi Party general secretary, had offered a "jaadu ki jhappi" to the Chief Minister while commenting on her style of functioning.

A chargesheet against Dutt has been filed in Pratapgarh district and Mau district courts for allegedly making a similar remark on Mayawati.

However, the actor had failed to appear before the courts despite repeated summons.
