    Defamation case: Arvind Kejriwal's lawyer no longer to appear for him

    Earlier on February 09, the Delhi High Court decided to transfer from the joint registrar to a court the ongoing cross-examination of Arun Jaitley in a defamation suit filed by him against Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and five other party leaders. Justice Manmohan said the cross examination of the union finance minister will be done by a single judge of the high court.

    In December 2015, Jaitley filed a defamation case against Kejriwal and Aam Aadmi Party leaders Kumar Vishwas, Ashutosh, Sanjay Singh, Raghav Chadha and Deepak Bajpayee, claiming that they made "false and defamatory" statements in the case involving DDCA, thereby harming his reputation.

    Jaitley has sought Rs 10 crore in damages.

    He had claimed that the AAP leaders attacked him over alleged irregularities and financial bungling in Delhi's cricket association, of which he was the President for about 13 years.
