Arvind Kejriwal gets relief from Delhi court

In a relief to Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, Delhi Court has granted him bail in a case regarding 2013 assembly polls.

According to the television reports, Delhi Court has granted him bail in the case of false details he provided in 2013 assembly polls.

It is to remind you that earlier in March, Kejriwal was summoned to Delhi court as an accused for allegedly giving false information in the election affidavit he filed during the 2013 Assembly elections.


The magistrate stated that “the factum of concealment of proper address by giving improper address, so that the proper/correct address remains untraceable, and also giving improper valuation of the said same property, prima facie amounts to wilful concealment and suppression and also furnishing of false information. Thus, there is sufficient ground for proceeding against accused."

Summoning Kejriwal, the magisterial court said the allegation that he falsely gave his address as one in Delhi — in order to qualify for contesting the polls in the capital — while he was living at Ghaziabad in Uttar Pradesh “prima facie amounts to wilful concealment, suppression and furnishing of false information…” “Thus there is sufficient ground for proceeding against the accused under Section 31 of the RP Act,” said the court.

He was summoned under Section 125-A of the Representation of People (RP) Act, 1951, Section 31 of the Representation of People Act, 1950 and Section 177 of Indian Penal Code.
