Indian opposition leader Rahul Gandhi has returned to parliament for the first time since he was convicted in a criminal defamation case.

The Congress party leader had lost his lawmaker status in March after he was sentenced to two years in jail.

He was reinstated as MP on Monday, two days after the Supreme Court suspended his conviction.

Congress leaders celebrated his return by shouting slogans and distributing sweets outside parliament.

Leaders of other opposition parties also expressed their joy over Mr Gandhi’s return to parliament.

Mr Gandhi is a Congress party MP from Wayanad in the southern state of Kerala.
