HAMREN, Feb 2: A court in Kabri Anglong has asked Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal to appear before the magistrate on April 7 in a crimil defamation case registered against him for his remarks on Prime Minister rendra Modi’s educatiol qualification.

Earlier, the court of the sub-divisiol magistrate (SDM) of Diphu had summoned Kejriwal to appear before the court on January 30 following a crimil defamation case filed by BJP leader and Karbi Anglong Autonomous Council (KAAC) Executive Member Surjya Rongphar on December 26 last year.

However, the lawyer of Kejriwal sought more time for his presence in the court following which the court fixed April 7 as the next date of appearance. Meanwhile, Surjya Rongphar said that Arvind Kejriwal had prayed through his counsel for some more time and filed an affidavit stating that he would appear before the court on April 7. Kejriwal on December 15 had tweeted that Prime Minister Modi had passed only the 12th standard and his degrees were fake.
