The additional district and sessions court on Saturday heard the anticipatory bail pleas of three Muslim leaders in connection with an alleged inflammatory speech made by them at a Congress rally in Tadkeshwar village of Surat district on October 21 and reserved the order for November 7.
The court has also asked for a video-recording of the meeting to be submitted before it.
A police complaint was filed against state Congress core committee member Kadir Pirzada, religious leader Maulana Faiyaz Latoori and the programme's organiser and district Congress vice-president Maksud Kazi by poll officials for violation of model code of conduct ahead of the Assembly polls.
The three had subsequently applied for anticipatory bail.
