New Delhi: Former Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal was today summoned as an accused in a criminal defamation complaint filed against him by BJP leader Nitin Gadkari.

Metropolitan Magistrate Gomati Manocha issued summon for April 7 against Kejriwal on the complaint in which Gadkari had alleged that he was defamed by the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader, who had included his name in the party's list of "India's most corrupt".

Senior advocate Pinki Anand and advocate Ajay Digpaul, who had appeared for Gadkari, had argued that Kejriwal had made the statement against the BJP leader with a "malafide intention" to tarnish the image and lower the dignity of their client.

The counsel had contended that Kejriwal had made "baseless and false allegation" against 57-year-old Gadkari.

The court had on February 18 recorded statements of Gadkari and advocate Neeraj as complainant witnesses in the complaint.
