Court issues notice to Subhash Chandra on plaint against Kejriwal

The Delhi High Court issued notice to Rajya Sabha MP Subhash Chandra and the Delhi Police seeking their responses on Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s plea to quash a criminal defamation complaint filed by the BJP leader.

A bench of Justice Sangita Dhingra Sehgal also exempted Kejriwal from personal appearance before a trial court on December 11 in the case.

The court was not inclined to stay the proceedings before the trial court and listed the matter for further hearing on January 22.

Kejriwal had sought stay on the summons issued to him by the trial court on March 4.

Chandra had on November 17 last year sought the prosecution of the Delhi chief minister for allegedly defaming him by levelling false allegations in the wake of demonetisation.
