New Delhi: Former Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal was Wednesday sent to two-day judicial custody by a court here after he refused to furnish a personal bail bond in a defamation case filed by BJP leader Nitin Gadkari.


Metropolitan Magistrate Gomati Manocha fixed Friday as the next date of hearing.

Manocha asked Kejriwal to furnish a bail bond of Rs.10,000 but the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader refused to.

Kejriwal was summoned by the court for describing former Bharatiya Janata Party president as a "corrupt" person.

Earlier, Kejriwal told the court he would not furnish a bail bond as the case was a political one.
