Dismissing all the three complaints, Metropolitan Magistrate Purshottam Pathak said, “Complaints against Arvind Kejriwal and Ramdev are dismissed. Complaint against Prashant Bhushan is also dismissed.”

Vibhor Anand, a law student had filed all the three complaints. He had alleged that Kejriwal had started a political storm by stating in a rally at Ghaziabad that the parliament was filled with "murderers, rapists and dacoits." 

Anand sought registration of FIR against Bhushan on charges of sedition for his alleged remarks supporting plebiscite in Jammu and Kashmir and for withdrawal of the army from the valley.

He had also made a similar complaint against Ramdev saying, “He had made derogatory allegations against parliamentarians who are running the system of the country and had attacked MPs calling them dacoits and murderers, which amounts to sedition”.
