In conjunction with a defamation complaint brought by the Delhi Lieutenant Governor, the Delhi High Court issued an interim injunction in favour of Vinai Kumar Saxena and against Aam Aadmi Party leaders on Tuesday.

The AAP leaders had accused Saxena of unethical activities during demonetisation, prompting the Delhi LG to seek an order barring the AAP leaders, including Durgesh Pathak, Saurabh Bhardwaj, Atishi Marlena, Sanjay Singh, and Jasmine Shah, from levelling additional claims against him. On September 22, the order was reserved.

The AAP politicians claimed that “LG was involved in a scam during demonetisation in 2016” and requested a CBI investigation.
