New Delhi, Jan 19: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal will attend a Mumbai court's hearing of a case pertaining to the holding of a rally in Mankhurd without permission during the 2014 Lok Sabha polls.

Party sources said the case pertains to a 2014 election rally in Mankhurd held to campaign for AAP candidates Meera Sanyal and Medha Patkar, which the Mumbai Police has claimed was "unscheduled" and held without prior and requisite permissions from traffic police.

On December 9 last year, Kurla Magistrate's court had granted permanent exemption from appearance to Kejriwal.

However, Magistrate Richa Khedekar had directed the Delhi CM to appear on January 20 for furnishing a bail bond.
