Delhi HC Dismisses Kejriwal’s Plea For Stay In Criminal Defamation Case

 

The trial in criminal defamation proceedings filed by Union Minister Arun Jaitley against Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and five other AAP leaders is now set to resume, with the Delhi High court on Wednesday dismissing a plea for its stay. The bench of Justice PS Teji in a 30-page judgment has dismissed the plea and has said that the civil defamation suit filed by Jaitley before the Delhi High Court and the criminal defamation complaint before the trial court were “separate proceedings”.
