Assam court issued an arrest warrant for the Kejriwal, Delhi's Chief Minister, when he failed to appear before the court in a hearing related to defamation case over the educational qualification of Modi.
The bailable warrant was issued against the Chief Minister and is latest in the series of troubles which he is currently facing because of his utterances. He is also being tried for defamation in Delhi Court over a case filed by Arun Jaitely.
After Kejriwal failed to show at the court on April 7 judicial magistrate Naba Kumar Deka Baruah in Diphu in Karbi Anglong district issued the warrant against him.
“Modiji 12 pass hain. Uske baad ki degree farzi hai (Narendra Modi is only 12th pass and all other succeeding degrees are fake)”, Kejriwal had tweeted on December 15.
Gurpreet Singh Uppal, Kejriwal's lawyer said that the CM was busy in the civic elections and it was impossible for him to be present in the court.
“On perusal of records, it reveals that the accused (Kejriwal) has not appeared before the court on the earlier occasion on January 30, too, availing adjournment for two months. Considering this, the petition of Gurpreet Singh Uppal is rejected,” the court said.
From quite some time Delhi CM is demanding that college and university certificates of Modi be made public. He also alleged that PM has furnished wrong information about his college education. The case will now be heard on May 8.
