Bribery remark: Court issues notice to Kejriwal


Panaji: A local court has issued a notice to Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal in connection with a case filed against him for his bribery remarks made during Goa Legislative elections held last year.

Judicial Magistrate First Class at Mapusa town, nine kms from here, issued the notice to the AAP leader yesterday and fixed the next hearing on 8 February.

In January 2017, the Election Commission had ordered the police to file an FIR against Kejriwal after he publicly appealed to the voters to accept bribe offered by rival parties to for them during the Goa elections. The election was held in February last year.

During a series of rallies in Goa between  7-8 January, Kejriwal had appealed to voters to “accept money from the Congress and BJP candidates, but for the AAP”.

The AAP had contested 39 out of 40 seats with its leader, Elvis Gomes, as the chief ministerial candidate.

A complaint against Kejriwal was lodged by local Election Commission officials with Mapusa police.

The returning officer had approached the judicial magistrate first class in Mapusa in December 2017 with a plea that an offence under section 171 (B) (inducement to voters) and 171 E (bribery) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) be registered against Kejriwal.
