New Delhi: Troubles just don’t seem to come to an end for the Aam Aadmi Party chief and Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal. Rajya Sabha MP Subhash Chandra on Thursday approached the Patiala House court seeking the prosecution of Delhi CM for allegedly defaming him using false allegations in a press conference.
In the plea filed by the chairman of the Essel group, Subhash Chandra, alleged that the Delhi CM Kejriwal while addressing a press conference on November 11 had made some false, fabricated and defamatory allegations against him.
Vijay Aggarwal, the advocate, said, “Kejriwal defamed the complainant (Chandra) by making inherently defamatory statements and caused serious harm to his reputation by imputing behaviour incompatible with proper conduct and suggestions of involvement in illegal activity.”
In the plea, Subhash Chandra claimed that while addressing the media, Kejriwal, without any lawful basis or justification, dragged his name in an attempt to defame him and lower the reputation in the eyes of general public.
The issue, which is likely to be heard tomorrow (Friday), sought Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s prosecution under section 500 (defamation) of Indian Penal Code.
