NEW DELHI: A court here Tuesday posted for April 9 hearing in the case against Aam Admi Party leader Arvind Kejriwal for allegedly asking voters to take bribes from other parties but to vote for his party.

Metropolitan Magistrate Richa Gusain Solanki said evidence against the former Delhi chief minister will be recorded that day.

Arun Kumar, a lawyer at the Tis Hazari court, accused Kejriwal of abetting bribery by asking voters to take bribes from the Congress and the BJP but to vote for the Aam Aadmi Party.

The court has also sought a status report from Delhi Police on a similar complaint filed by another advocate, Ikrant Sharma.

Kumar contended that Kejriwal, despite knowing that bribery was a crime, instigated voters to take bribes.

He said Kejriwal made the statement at a public rally on January 18 at Uttam Nagar and then again January 22 at Krishna Nagar.

The Election Commission has issued three notices to Kejriwal, asking him to desist from making such comments.
