The Delhi High Court on July 13 stayed the trial court summons
against Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and asked him to rather explain the meaning of word ‘thulla’.
A trial court had issued a summons in a criminal defamation case which accused Kejriwal of making derogatory remarks against local policemen.
The court has asked Kejriwal to explain the meaning on the next hearing, which has been set for August 21.
The High Court though gave a warning to Kejriwal that his answer needs to “satisfy the court” and so he needs to be ready.
The court also said that ‘thulla’ is not to be found in any dictionary and if Kejriwal had used the word, he must know the meaning as well.
In 2015, a constable Ajay Kumar Taneja had filed a case against Kejriwal alleging that he had defamed Delhi Police by calling them “thulla”.
