Delhi High Court asks Arvind Kejriwal to explain ‘Thulla’
New Delhi: Slamming Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, the Delhi High Court on Wednesday asked the meaning of his allegedly used word ‘Thulla’ regarding policemen.
In a television debate, he used word ‘Thulla’ for Delhi police after which a police constable, Ajay Kumar Taneja had filed a case against Kejriwal.
Kejriwal, however, has been granted relief of not giving a personal appearance in the court on Thursday.
Asking Kejriwal about the meaning of word ‘thulla’, court said that if Delhi CM uses this word (thulla) for somebody, he must know the meaning and he has to satisfy the court with the meaning of the word also.
Senior advocate N Hariharan, who was appearing for Kejriwal said-
- ‘Thulla’ was not used against all police personnel but against those indulging in wrong practices.
- It is a word with no meaning, so it is not defamatory.
