After series of controversies and being trolled on Twitter for his tweets, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal once again has found himself in a soup due to one of his old comments.
Kejriwal on May 7, was issued a summon by a local Delhi court (Saket) with regards to a criminal defamation complaint filed against him by a constable.
The complaint was with regards to Delhi CM allegedly calling Delhi Police officers ‘thulla’ a few months back.
Taking up the case, the Metropolitan Magistrate Ravindra Kumar Pandey said that prima facie it looks like Arvind Kejriwal committed the offence.
The CM has now been summoned by the court on July 14.
Complainant Ajay Kumar Taneja of Delhi’s Lajpat Nagar police station said that being a member of Delhi Police he was defamed by the word used by Kejriwal.
Last year in July 2015, Kejriwal had used the term ‘thulla’ for Delhi policemen while talking to a news channel.
