Delhi High Court issued notice to Union Minister Arun Jaitley on Friday after Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal filed an application seeking minutes of Delhi and District Cricket Association (DDCA) meetings between 1999 and 2014 in the defamation case.
The notice was issued to BJP leader by Joint Registrar Pankaj Gupta and has sought Union Minister’s reply by July 28. The application has been filed regarding the Rs 10 crore defamation suit which Jaitley filed against Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Kejriwal and his 5 party members — Raghav Chadha, Kumar Vishwas, Ashutosh, Sanjay Singh and Deepak Bajpai.
While Jaitley’s counsel has slammed Kejriwal’s application process calling it improper and has said that a plea should be moved in correct way.
AAP leaders led by party supremo Arvind Kejriwal accused Arun Jaitley of corruption while he held the post of President of the DDCA from 2000 to 2013.
In return, Jaitley filed a defamation suit demanding Rs 10 crore for the false claims against him and harming his reputation.
