Delhi court summons AAP leaders Atishi in defamation case on ‘MLAs poaching’ remark | India News

NEW DELHI: Delhi’s Rouse Avenue Court on Tuesday summoned AAP leader Atishi to appear before it on June 29 in relation to a defamation case filed by Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) spokesperson Praveen Shankar Kapoor.
The court’s order mandates that Atishi must appear before it to address the allegations made in the defamation case, claiming that she had made false allegations of BJP trying to poach AAP MLAs.
In a press conference by Atishi on April 2, she said, “I was told to either join the BJP to save and extend my political career or I would be arrested by the ED within a month.”
She had also claimed that she and three other senior AAP functionaries could be arrested soon, and claimed that she was advised to join the BJP or risk being arrested by the ED in a month.
On April 3, Kapoor sent a legal notice to Atishi. BJP had demanded a public apology for claiming that the party had approached her through a “very close” person, asking her to switch sides.
The complaint has been filed before the court of additional chief metropolitan magistrate Tanya Bamniyal and was scheduled for pre-summoning evidence on May 4.
