The court of judicial magistrate Bikramdeep Singh on Friday summoned Aam Aadmi Party ( AAP) leader Sanjay Singh in a defamation case filed by revenue minister Bikram Singh Majithia.

The next hearing of the case will be held on February 8.

Majithia had filed the case on January 12, accusing the AAP leader of defaming him by dragging his name in the drug racket.

Majithia’s counsel Damanbir Singh Sobti said the summons were issued under Sections 500 and 501 of the IPC. A notice was served on Sanjay Singh, incharge of Punjab party affairs, but he didn’t reply to the notice, so Majithia filed the defamation suit.
