Turning tables on crim defamation: Bhushan says, release Kejriwal now or we'll go to court

Responding to the incarceration of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) chief Arvind Kejriwal, who refused to pay Rs 10,000 bail in a criminal defamation case filed by BJP politician Nitin Gadkari before a magistrate, advocate and AAP leader Prashant Bhushan said that it was a travesty of law that “an honest man [Arvind Kejriwal] is in jail, while a corrupt person [Gadkari, allegedly] is outside.’’

“We do not agree with the order of the court. If Mr. Kejriwal is not released on Friday, the order will be challenged in a higher court... It is not necessary to have a bail bond for those who are ready to give an undertaking that they will remain present for court proceedings." The party has also threatened protests. [The Hindu]
