MUMBAI: The Kurla magistrate's court here today granted permanent exemption from appearance to Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal who is facing a case for holding a rally in Mumbai without required permissions.

Magistrate Richa Khedekar, however, directed Kejriwal to appear on January 20 for furnishing a bail bond.

A complaint was lodged against the AAP leader in March this year for holding a rally in suburban Mankhurd without prior permission from the traffic police.

Kejriwal approached the High Court seeking quashing of the FIR and exemption from appearing before the Kurla metropolitan magistrate.

But the HC asked him to appear before the magistrate and seek permanent exemption from appearance from that court.
