In connection with Delhi and District Cricket Association (DDCA) defamation case, Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley is expected to appear before the Delhi High Court on Monday.
Jaitley will be cross-examined by counsel for Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and other Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leaders and senior advocate Ram Jethmalani, according to reports.
The finance minister had filed a suit in 2015 seeking Rs.10 crore damages from Kejriwal, and five other Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leaders for accusing him of corruption in DDCA.
The AAP leaders have alleged irregularities and financial bungling by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader in the Delhi and District Cricket Association (DDCA). Jaitley was the president of DDCA for about 13 years till 2013.
Meanwhile, the Delhi High Court (HC) on March 1 dismissed Kejriwal's application seeking Finance Minister Arun Jaitley and his family’s bank account details.
