Arun Jaitley files new defamation suit of Rs 10 crore against Arvind Kejriwal

Arun Jaitley / Arvind Kejriwal

Finance Minister Arun Jaitley on Monday filed a fresh defamation suit against Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal seeking Rs 10 crore in damages after the latter’s lawyer Ram Jethmalani allegedly called him a “crook”.

The fresh defamation suit by Jaitley will now be a separate case from the ongoing defamation suit against Kejriwal and five other Aam Aadmi Party leaders, also of Rs 10 crore.

The AAP leaders had allegedly attacked Jaitley and his family members in various fora, including social media, over alleged irregularities and financial bungling in the DDCA.
