Taking the Atishi-Gautam Gambhir face-off further, BJP leader Harish Khurana, on Monday, filed a complaint against Sunita Kejriwal, wife of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, at the Tis Hazari Court.
Khurana, in his complaint, has alleged that Sunita Kejriwal holds two voter IDs, one from Sahibabad (Ghaziabad) and one from Civil Lines (Chandni Chowk), reports ANI.
The complaint was filed under Section 155(2), seeking a direction for a police investigation into offences punishable under Sections 17 and 31 of The Representation of the People Act, 1950 and Section 125A of The Representation of the People Act, 1951.
This move by Khurana is being viewed as a counter-attack to AAP’s allegations about cricketer-turned-politician and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) candidate from the East Delhi seat, Gautam Gambhir, having two voter ID cards, one from Rajendra Nagar and another from Karol Bagh.
AAP has filed a criminal complaint in Tis Hazari Court against Gambhir.
AAP’s candidate from East Delhi, Atishi, said that Gambhir faces up to one year in prison for this offence.
Khurana, in his plea filed at the Tis Hazari Court, has alleged that Sunita Kejriwal holds one ID card from Ghaziabad in Uttar Pradesh and the other from Chandni Chowk in Delhi.
He has asked the court to issue summons against Sunita and take action against her for cheating under the Indian Penal Code and the provisions of The Representation of the People Act.
