New Delhi : A court here on Friday fixed September 10 for recording of pre-summoning evidence in a criminal defamation complaint by a Delhi Police constable against Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal for using a slang “thulla” to describe policemen.

Metropolitan Magistrate Anu Aggarwal, while fixing the next date on the complaint filed by constable Harvinder posted at Govind Puri police station here, summoned the Station House Officer and a head constable as complainant witnesses for recording their statements.

“I have gone through the authorities cited by the counsel for the complainant. Even otherwise in the interest of justice I deem it fit to grant opportunity to the complainant to substantiate the averments made in the complaint by leading appropriate evidence.

“List for the purpose of evidence on September 10, 2015. Witness 2, SHO of Govindpuri police station, with the original complaint and witness 3, Head Constable, be also summoned for the next date of hearing…” the magistrate said.
