The Supreme Court on Wednesday stayed the defamation proceedings against BJP MP Manoj Tiwari and MLA Vijender Gupta in a defamation case filed by Delhi Deputy CM Manish Sisodia. 

A three-judge bench headed by the Chief Justice S.A. Bobde, and Justices A.S. Bopanna & V. Ramasubramanian was hearing the appeal filed by Bhartiya Janta Party leaders against the Delhi High Court order which had dismissed their petition seeking quashing of summons issued to them in a defamation case filed by Deputy CM Manish Sisodia.

The Delhi High Court judge, Justice Anu Malhotra had on December 17, 2020, last year, dismissed the petition filed by BJP leaders challenging the Summons issued to them in a defamation case filed against them by Manish Sisodia. 

Sisodia had filed a criminal complaint against Manoj Tiwari, Vijender Gupta and others for allegedly making false allegations of corruption to the tune of Rs 2,000 crore with regard to the construction of classrooms in a government school.

Besides Tiwari, and Gupta the complaint was filed against BJP MPs Hans Raj Hans and Pravesh Verma, former MLA Manjinder Singh Sirsa and party spokesperson Harish Khurana.

Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate (ACMM) Vishal Pahuja had asked Tiwari, Pravesh Verma, Hansraj Hans, Vijender Gupta, and Harish Khurana to appear before him in connection with the case.

Sisodia had filed the complaint under Section 200 of CrPC for the commission of offences under Section 499 and 500 read with Sections 34 and 35 of IPC for making a false and defamatory statement in print, electronic and social media.

Sisodia stated that all the allegations made by the BJP leaders jointly and individually were false, defamatory and derogatory with an intention to harm and damage his reputation and goodwill.

We are exposing a scam in which Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia are involved. An RTI application has revealed that extra Rs 2,000 crore was given for constructions of rooms in schools that could’ve been constructed in only Rs 892 crore. Thirty-four contractors were given the task including their relatives,” 

Tiwari had said at a press conference.
