The writer - Ajay Pal Nagar - has alleged that Kejriwal's book Swaraj has copied the contents in his book titled Bharatiya Raj Vyawastha.
He claimed that he had presented the book to Kejriwal in March, 2012 and he was appalled to see its content being copied in ‘Swaraj' that was published in July 2012, reported The Pioneer.
"Kejriwal has illegally published my book in his own name and has added some Government documents to mislead the people," the complainant said. He has said that he had released his book through a Delhi-based publication one year before the release of Swaraj and the plagiarism has been done intentionally by Kejriwal.
Earlier the author lodged a complaint in Badalpur police station in December 2012 but no action was initiated against Kejriwal and the matter was almost closed. He then went to Chief District Magistrate Court of Noida where his application was taken up by the Magistrate under Section 156 (3) of CrPc.
"I wrote the book, Bharatiya Raj Vyawastha, with 10 years' experience of my social life. I met eminent lawyers, socialists, constitutional experts and many more before writing the book. As I was impressed with Arvind Kejriwal and his team during Anna movement, I sent a copy of my book to Kejriwal but he took unfair advantage of it. I have moved court for action against him for exclusive theft and a case under Section 200 of CrPc has been registered against Kejriwal. The court could serve notice to him. If required I will move upper courts for justice," said Nagar.
The case has been filed before District Judicial Magistrate of Noida and the case has been accepted.
