Kejriwal gets bail in defamation charge against MP

Fri, Jul 08, 2016, 03:39 PM
Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, who was summoned as an accused in a criminal defamation complaint filed by BJP MP Ramesh Bidhuri, was granted bail by a court in New Delhi on Friday.

Metropolitan Magistrate Harvinder Singh granted the relief to Kejriwal on furnishing of a personal bond of Rs 10,000 after he appeared before the court.

The court has now fixed the matter for further hearing on August 6. Kejriwal was summoned as accused by the court in February this year on a criminal defamation complaint filed against him by Bidhuri, an MP from South Delhi parliamentary constituency, under section 500 (defamation) of the IPC. Bidhuri had alleged that Kejriwal had defamed him during the interview to a news channel.

Kejriwal is also facing a huge defamation suit filed by Finance Minister Arun Jaitley in connection with Delhi cricket funds.
