A Delhi Court, on Wednesday, issued summons to the officials of State Election Commission of Uttar Pradesh and Delhi to bring all records of documents related to Sunita Kejriwal, wife of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, in connection with a complaint filed against her for allegedly possessing two voter IDs, reports ANI.
The next hearing is on June 3.
BJP leader Harish Khurana, on Monday, had filed a complaint against Sunita Kejriwal, at the Tis Hazari Court, alleging that she is in the possession of two voter IDs, one from Sahibabad (Ghaziabad, Uttar Pradesh) and one from Civil lines (Chandni Chowk, Delhi).
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.
Khurana, son of former Delhi Chief Minister Madan Lal Khurana, had filed the complaint after the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) had filed a criminal complaint against BJP’s Lok Sabha candidate for East Delhi Gautam Gambhir at the Tis Hazari Court alleging that the cricketer-turned-politician is holding two voter ID cards, one from Rajendra Nagar and another from Karol Bagh, both in Delhi.
AAP’s candidate from East Delhi, Atishi, had raised the issue after Gambhir was announced as the BJP’s candidate from the East Delhi Lok Sabha constituency.
She had said that Gambhir faces up to one year in prison for this offence.
