The Delhi High Court on Thursday refrained from staying trial in the defamation case against Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal by Congress leader Sheila Dikshit’s ex-aide Pawan Khera.
The court also issued a notice to Pawan Khera on Kejriwal’s plea to quash the defamation complaint.
The complainant had filed the defamation case over Kejriwal’s alleged remarks against Dikshit during the power tariff hike protests in October 2012.
Khera had said that Kejriwal had used objectionable language against Dikshit in a TV show.(Minimal edits applied, story generated from syndicated ANI feed)
