A local court has issued fresh bailable warrant against Union Commerce and Industry Minister Kamal Nath, asking him to appear as a witness in a case wherein two persons had allegedly used his fake letterheads for seeking promotion at the Bhopal Development Authority (BDA).
Judge Lalaram Meena issued the warrant of Rs 500 against Nath on Monday asking him to appear on January 15.
The court is trying two persons - Mohd Sohail, a BDA employee, and his acquaintance Rakesh Shrivastava for allegedly using Nath's fake letterheads to seek promotion in 2001.
The judge had issued the first bailable warrant against the Minister on November 11 upon his failure to testify in the case. However, it could not be served on him due to improper address, the court was informed, following which the fresh warrant was issued.
