New Delhi: A team of the Rajasthan Police will question sociologist Ashis Nandy on Thursday over his controversial comments linking Dalits to corruption. But the sociologist, who will appear in the Supreme Court later on Thursday afternoon, will request the apex court that all FIRs filed against him be quashed. Nandy's argument is based on the fact that no offence was mentioned in the FIR.
