A bailable arrest warrant has been issued against Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal in a defamation case emerging out of his tweet on the Prime Minister’s education qualification.

Karbi Anglong Autonomous District Council Executive Member, Surjya Rongphar, had filed the defamation case in the magistrate’s court on December 26 last year.

Magistrate, Diphu, Naba Kumar Deka Baruah, issued the warrant of Rs 10,000 yesterday and summoned the AAP pioneer to show up under the steady gaze of the court on May 8.

Arvind Kejriwal through his lawyer, Gurpreet Singh Uppal, had sought time from the court until April 7, saying that it would not be possible for him to leave Delhi due to the MCD polls on April 23 and the nature of his work.
