Defamation case by Bikram Majithia: Arvind Kejriwal appears before Amritsar court
Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) national convener and Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal appeared before Amritsar district court on Tuesday in connection with a defamation case filed by Punjab cabinet minister Bikram Singh Majithia.
“On last hearing in the case on October 15, he (Kejriwal) took exemption from personal appearance,” AAP’s legal wing head Himmat Singh Shergill said. On May 20, Majithia had filed a criminal defamation case against Kejriwal and two other AAP leaders in the Amritsar court alleging that AAP was bent upon tarnishing his and his family’s image by levelling baseless allegations on drug issue.
Besides Kejriwal, AAP leaders Sanjay Singh and Ashish Khetan were also named in the case which accuses them of “tarnishing” the reputation of Majithia and his family members by levelling “false, baseless and malicious charges”.
