HC quashes summons issued to Kejriwal in code of conduct violation case

Panaji: The Goa bench of the Bombay High Court on Tuesday quashed the summons issued to Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) national convenor Arvind Kejriwal by a magistrate in an alleged case of violation of the model code of conduct.

Talking to PTI, the party’s Goa unit chief Amit Palekar said the high court quashed the summons issued to the Delhi chief minister on a complaint filed against him during the 2017 Goa assembly election.

The judicial magistrate first class (JFMC) Mapusa had summoned Kejriwal in connection with a chargesheet filed against him under the Representation of the People Act and section 171 (E) of the Indian Penal Code dealing with bribery.
