The court fixed the matter for April 15 for filing of the action taken report.

During the hearing, complainant Brijesh Shukla of Swaraj Janta Party submitted documents in court relating to his claim that the Delhi Government had spent over Rs 42 lakh by giving advertisements in 20 newspapers which were allegedly misleading.

The complainant has sought direction to the SHO of Karawal Nagar police station in north east Delhi to register an FIR against Kejriwal under Section 406 (criminal breach of trust) of IPC.

Kejriwal had come out with a full-page advertisement in newspapers in October last saying there were misunderstandings regarding a strike by MCD employees and he wanted to make it clear that it was wrong to say that the corporations come under the Delhi government, Shukla claimed.


“In November 2015, I filed an RTI with Delhi government which in its reply has said that the corporations are under its control. Action should be initiated against him for misleading people and spending public money for spreading lies,” the complainant said.

Shukla said he had also filed complaints to the Deputy Commissioner of Police of the north east district and the LG seeking registration of FIR against Kejriwal for allegedly misappropriating public fund.
