A Delhi court framed charges against Congress leader Jagdish Tytler on Monday in a defamation case filed by advocate HS Phoolka, who represented the victims of the 1984 anti-Sikh riots.


Additional chief metropolitan magistrate Gaurav Rao framed defamation charges against Tytler, hearing a plaintiff filed by Phoolka.

Phoolka had filed the complaint in 2006, alleging that the Congress leader had made derogatory remarks about him in a news programme aired Sep 7, 2004.

Tytler pleaded not guilty and claimed trial. The court listed the matter for May 2 to record evidence in the case.
