NEW DELHI: Arvind Kejriwal today concluded in the Delhi High Court his cross examination of Finance Minister Arun Jaitley in a defamation case lodged by the BJP leader against the Delhi chief minister and five other AAP leaders.
The cross-examination of Jaitley by Kejriwal, which started in March 2017, ended after more than 300 questions were put to the Union minister over a total of nine days.
The proceedings also witnessed the high court raising serious objections against the manner in which questions were being put to the BJP leader.
After Kejriwal, cross-examination will continue on behalf of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Sanjay Singh.
During the day's proceedings, Justice Rajiv Sahai Endlaw said the trend of questions put to the BJP leader "shows the malicious nature of the cross-examination".
Jaitley was being cross-examined in the Rs 10-crore defamation suit he had filed against Kejriwal and five other AAP leaders-- Raghav Chadha, Kumar Vishwas, Sanjay Singh, Ashutosh and Deepak Bajpai.
They had alleged financial irregularities in the Delhi and District Cricket Association (DDCA) when Jaitley was its president.
The BJP leader has denied the allegations.
