Diphu sub-divisional officer Sadar Deka Barua issued the order on Tuesday and asked Kejriwal to be present on January 30, 2017.

Karbi Anglong Autonomous Council executive member Surjo Rongphar filed a complaint the against the Aam Aadmi Party leader in Diphu court accusing him of making defamatory remarks against the PM on his educational qualifications.

“As the Delhi chief minister spoke against Modi ji, so I filed the case against Kejriwal,” Rongphar, a local BJP leader, said.
