HC relief for Kejriwal

New Delhi, December 10

The Delhi High Court today put on hold the proceedings in a criminal defamation complaint against Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal for re-tweeting an allegedly defamatory video circulated by YouTuber Dhruv Rathee in May 2018.

Justice Suresh Kait issued notices to the state and the complainant, seeking their stand on a plea by Kejriwal challenging the summons issued to him in the case by a trial court. Senior advocate Vikas Pahwa and advocate Mohammad Irshad, appearing for Kejriwal, told the court that over 4,000 people had re-tweeted it, but the complainant had not accused anyone of them. — PTI
