Ahmedabad: The Gujarat High Court, on March 31, while pronouncing its verdict on the issue of degree of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, dismissed Kejriwal’s petition by imposing a fine of Rs 25,000 to him. Still the problems of Kejriwal does not seem to come to an end. Now, Ahmedabad Metropolitan Court has issued summons to Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and Rajya Sabha MP Sanjay Singh. Both have been issued orders to appear before the court on June 7.
Lawyer for the Petitioner, Amit Nayak, said that on April 15, the court had asked both the leaders to appear before the court. The matter was listed today, but there was no clarification in the summons. Hence, the judge has ordered to issue fresh summons to both the leaders along with the copies of the complaint. The next hearing of the case is fixed on June 7.
Registrar Dr. Piyush Patel on behalf of Gujarat University filed a defamation case in the Metro Court under Section 500 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC). The prosecutor has also presented the evidence of tweets of Kejriwal and Sanjay Singh as evidence before the court. It has been alleged that the words were spoken intentionally to defame the reputation of Gujarat University.
The complainant also said that the degree of Prime Minister is published on the website of the university. However, Kejriwal has made such personal remarks despite being a civil servant. It appears from the comment that Gujarat University is issuing fake degrees. People get the impression that the university is involved in wrong activities. The registrar alleged in the complaint, that Kejriwal and Sanjay Singh issued defamatory statements even after the Gujarat High Court set aside the order of Central Information Commission.
