NEW DELHI: A BJP youth wing leader today sought Re 1 as compensation from Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and AAP spokesperson Sanjay Singh claiming he was projected as the person who assaulted former minister Kapil Mishra.
The case was filed at the Tees Hazari court here.
Ankit Bhardwaj, a state executive member of Bharatiya Janta Yuva Morcha (BJYM), had earlier filed a criminal defamation petition against the AAP leaders for "wrongly taking" his name in the media by describing him as the person who had assaulted Mishra on May 10.
"That the plaintiff (Bhardwaj) assesses the damages at Rs one crore but has no knowledge of any valuable assets of the defendants (Kejriwal and Singh). So the plaintiff limits his claim to Re 1," the plea said.
