Complaint against Kejriwal to be heard Feb 7
New Delhi, Feb 5 : A court here will Feb 7 hear a criminal complaint against Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal for allegedly giving "misleading information" in his affidavit filed prior to the assembly elections.
Metropolitan Magistrate Swati Katiyar, while posting the matter for Friday, said Wednesday that she would first go through the complaint and then only proceed further in the matter.
"Let me go through the file and let me see the provision ... you come on Feb 7," the judge said.
The petition was filed by non-governmental organisation (NGO) Maulik Bharat Trust, through its office-bearers, alleging "wilful concealment and suppression of correct address and value of the aforesaid property amounts to commission of a criminal offence under section 125A of the Representation of the People Act, 1951".
Earlier, the NGO had approached the Delhi High Court with a plea seeking quashing of nomination papers of Kejriwal on the ground of "illegalities" in his affidavit filed before the poll panel.
The high court had refused to entertain the plea and directed the petitioners to approach a magisterial court for the remedy.
