Kejriwal arraigned in Gadkari defamation case

06gadkariAgencies, New Delhi
A Patiala House court framed charges against former Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal in a defamation case filed by Union Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari.
Metropolitan Magistrate Gomti Manocha framed charges  under IPC Sec 499 (intent) and 500 (speech) after both Gadkari and Kejriwal failed to heed her suggestion to settle the dispute out of court.

Gadkari, initially, demanded an apology from the Aam Aadmi Party leader for calling him ‘corrupt.’

The AAP leader, however, declined to retract. Gadkari, who appeared personally in the court, later said he was prepared to withdraw the case if Kejriwal takes back his allegation.
Kejriwal said he would not resile as he was fighting against corruption and would provide evidence to back his accusation.

The Magistrate granted the two sides time upto 1300 hrs to sort out the dispute.

When both the parties decided to stick to their guns, the court framed charges against Kejriwal.

The case will come up for hearing on August 2.
