Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

A city today asked a man to file several documents in a criminal complaint seeking lodging of an FIR against Chief Minister Kejriwal for allegedly misleading people by saying that the municipal corporations were not under state's control.

Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Munish Markan asked complainant Brijesh Shukla to submit documents relating to his claim that the Government had spent over Rs 42 lakh by giving advertisements in 20 newspapers which were allegedly misleading.



The fixed January 13 next year for further hearing in the matter.

The complainant's counsel had earlier informed the that in an RTI reply, government has admitted that a total expense of Rs 42,01,405 was incurred in giving advertisements to the newspapers on October 30, 2015.

He had argued that public money was wasted for "spreading lies" and people were "misled".

The complainant has sought direction to the SHO of Karawal Nagar police station in North East to register an FIR against Kejriwal under Section 406 (criminal breach of trust) of IPC.

The complaint has claimed that Kejriwal had come out with full-page advertisements in newspapers in October last saying there were misunderstandings regarding a strike by MCD employees and he wanted to make it clear that it was wrong to say that the corporations fell under the government.

"In November 2015, I filed an RTI with government which in its reply has said that the corporations are under its control. Action should be initiated against him (Kejriwal) for misleading people and spending public money for spreading lies," the complainant has said.

Shukla claimed he had also filed complaints to the Deputy Commissioner of Police and the Lieutenant Governor seeking lodging of FIR against Kejriwal for allegedly misappropriating public fund, but no action was taken.

Shukla, the complainant, had recently allegedly thrown ink at Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia outside the LG's office.
