Additional chief metropolitan magistrate Samar Vishal asked Tharoor to appear before him on June 7.
Speaking at the Bangalore Literature Festival last October, Tharoor had said: 'Modi is like a scorpion sitting on a Shiv-ling. You cannot remove him with your hand and you cannot hit it with a 'chappal' (slipper) either.'
