Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal, deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia and other AAP leaders appeared in a Delhi court for violating prohibitory orders and obstructing public servants in discharge of their duty during an agitation, on 15 May.
They appeared in the court in pursuance of the metropolitan magistrate Akash Jainâs direction. On the last date of hearing, Jain apparently got angry that the accused had not appeared before him.
During the hearing, senior advocate HS Phoolka and advocate RK Wadhwa, appearing for the APP leaders, moved an application seeking certain documents, which were not supplied to them with the charge sheet.
The court had earlier directed them to appear before it, saying there was âno justifiable groundâ for their exemption from personal appearance.
Kejriwal and others had staged a âdharnaâ outside Rail Bhavan demanding action against police officials in January last year. They were chargesheeted under sections 145, 147, 186, 353 and the Indian Penal Code.
