Court to hear defamation case against Kejriwal on Aug. 20

New Delhi, Aug. 6 : The Patiala House Court will hear the defamation case filed against Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal by Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP Ramesh Bidhuri on August 20.

The court earlier on July 8 granted bail to Kejriwal on a personal bond of Rs.10, 000. The court was hearing a defamation complaint filed by Bidhuri, who said Kejriwal made defamatory statements against him, terming him a criminal, in an interview to a private channel on July 17 last year.

Bidhuri told the court that Kejriwal's statements had maligned him and sullied his image. Bidhuri claimed that no case was pending against him and Kejriwal had defamed him by giving such a statement.
