New Delhi: The Karkarduma Court in Delhi has given a strong view on Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's absence in defamation case. The court has ordered him to appear before it at 2 pm on Tuesday.

Stating that no reason was given for the absence, the court also summoned Delhi Deputy CM Manish Sisodia and Senior Aam Aadmi Party leader Yogendra Yadav in the case.

Court Slammed all three stating that they had 'no respect for the law'. Kejriwal, Sisodia and Yadav had sought exemption from personal appearances for the day, citing lawyers' strike.

The court earlier asked the trio to appear before it on March 17 as it is scheduled to pronounce its order on the issue of framing of charges against them in a criminal defamation complaint.

Kejriwal, Sisodia and Yogendra Yadav were released on bail after they had appeared in the court on June 4, 2014 in pursuance to summons against them by the court.

The summons to them were issued on the complaint of advocate Surender Kumar Sharma under sections 499, 500 (defamation) and 34 (common intention) of the IPC, with the court, saying there was prima facie material to summon the accused.
