Plea to summon officials in Kejriwal abetting bribery case

New Delhi:  An advocate, who filed a criminal complaint against Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal accusing him of abetting bribery, on Wednesday moved an application seeking summoning of poll officials as witnesses in the case.

Arun Kumar, a lawyer at the Tis Hazari courts, accused Kejriwal of abetting bribery by asking voters to take bribes from the Congress and the Bharatiya Janata Party but to vote for the Aam Aadmi Party.

He requested Metropolitan Magistrate Babru Bhan to issue summons to officials of the Election Commission as complainant witnesses with notices that it issued to Kejriwal, asking him to desist from making such comments.

The court has put the matter for December 4 for consideration of his application.

The lawyer has contended that Kejriwal, despite knowing that bribery was a crime, instigated voters to take money.

He had said Kejriwal made the statement at a public rally on January 18 at Uttam Nagar and then again on January 22 at Krishna Nagar.

The Election Commission had issued three notices to Kejriwal, asking him to desist from making such comments.
