NEW DELHI:  A city court on Tuesday summoned Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal as an accused for allegedly giving false information in an affidavit filed in the run up to the 2013 Delhi assembly polls and directed him to appear before it on July 30. The court also said that prima facie, his actions amounted to willful concealment and suppression of facts.

Metropolitan Magistrate Snigdha Sarvaria said that there were sufficient grounds to proceed against Kejriwal on allegations that he had concealed his correct address and suppressed the market value of his property in his affidavit given before the Election Commission. Kejriwal is alleged to have provided a Delhi residential address in order to contest polls while living at Ghaziabad, Uttar Pradesh.

The court was hearing a criminal complaint filed on behalf of Maulik Bharat Trust. The NGO had approached the Delhi HC seeking to quash his nomination papers but the HC had refused to entertain the plea.
