A court here posted to Wednesday further hearing on a criminal complaint filed against Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal for giving "misleading information" in his affidavit filed prior to the assembly elections.

The complaint was heard by Metropolitan Magistrate Vijeta Singh Tuesday and posted for further hearing Wednesday.

"At the request of counsel for the complainant, be listed for consideration on Feb 5," said the magistrate.

The petition was filed by NGO Maulik Bharat Trust, through its office bearers, alleging "wilful concealment and suppression of correct address and value of the aforesaid property amounts to commission of a criminal offence under section 125A of the Representation of the People Act".

Earlier, the NGO had approached the Delhi High Court with a plea seeking quashing of nomination papers of Kejriwal on the ground of "illegalities" in his affidavit filed before the poll panel.

The high court had refused to entertain the plea and directed the petitioners to approach a magisterial court for the remedy.
