Delhi court takes strong view of Kejri’s absence - Sakshi Post

A Delhi court took a strong view of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal , Delhi minister Manish Sisodia and senior party leader Yogendra Yadav’s absence during court hearing.

Responding to their plea that they be exempted from the hearing of a defamation fined SK Sharma, Metropolitan Magistrate Mayuri Singh observed that accused persons have not explained any reasonable ground for the plea seeking exemption from personal appearance in the court and they have no respect of law.
On Tuesday, the judge asked them to explain why should they be exempted from appearing in the court and directed them to be present in the court.
Kejriwal, Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Yogendra Yadav moved their application seeking exemption from personal appearance at the hearing. Keeping the matter pending for 2 p.m., the court asked them to appear before it on Tuesday.
The complainant, advocate Surender Kumar Sharma had alleged that in 2013 the AAP approached him and asked him to contest the Delhi assembly elections on a party ticket, saying Kejriwal was pleased with his social services.
On October 14, 2013, Sharma claimed, articles in leading newspapers carried "defamatory, unlawful and derogatory words used by the accused persons" which have lowered his reputation in the Bar and the society.
