The framing of charges by a court in a case paves the way for start of the trial of those accused in that case.
Granting Rahul exemption from appearance for today's hearing, the court posted the case for framing of charges on July 28.
During the rally, Rahul had allegedly said that "The RSS people killed (Mahatma) Gandhi."
The court had granted bail to Rahul in the case last November.
Rahul had said earlier that he won't apologise for his statement, as demanded by the complainant.
