Jaitley filed defamation suit against Kejriwal


New Delhi, May 23: Finance Minister Arun Jaitley filed a defamation suit of Rs 10 crore against Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.

Joint Registrar Pankaj Gupta issued the notice to Kejriwal and the matter lies in court on July 26.

Jaitley has objected to Kejriwal’s lawyer Ram Jethmalani using the word “crook” against the Union Minister.

The suit is separate with Rs 10 crore Delhi and District Cricket Association (DDCA) defamation suit against Kejriwal.

On May 17, Jaitley and Senior advocate Jethmalani clashed in the court on the word “crook” that Jethmalani used during the Minister’s cross-examination in the DDCA case.
