NEW DELHI: Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal, who was summoned as accused in a criminal defamation complaint filed against him by BJP MP Ramesh Bidhuri, was on Monday granted exemption from personal appearance by a court. Metropolitan Magistrate Harvinder Singh granted the relief to Kejriwal after his counsel moved an exemption plea on his behalf, submitting that the chief minister would not be able to attend the proceedings as he was engaged in some meetings.
