Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit on Wednesday recorded her statement in a criminal defamation case filed by her against BJP leader Vijender Gupta for allegedly using “uncivilised language” before the recent municipal polls.

Dikshit had filed the suit against Gupta for putting up hoardings, accusing her government of conniving with discoms and indulging in corruption in determining a new power tariff. Gupta had made the allegations a few days before the April 15 MCD elections.

Dikshit recorded her statement before metropolitan magistrate Saumya Chauhan who, if satisfied that there was sufficient material, may summon the BJP leader.
