Sisodia case: SC junks Manoj Tiwari’s plea against summons, allows Vijender Gupta’s appeal

A bench comprising Justices S. Abdul Nazeer and V. Ramasubramanian, said that it has dismissed Manoj Tiwari’s appeal, however it has allowed Vijender Gupta’s appeal.

On September 21, the Supreme Court reserved its verdict on two separate pleas of BJP leaders Tiwari and Gupta challenging a Delhi High Court order, which declined to quash summons of a trial court against them in a criminal defamation case. Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia had filed a private defamation complaint against the BJP leaders for allegedly levelling corruption charges against him.

In November 2019, a trial court had ordered summoning the BJP leaders and others as accused in the criminal defamation case filed by Delhi Deputy CM. The BJP leaders moved the high court seeking relief, but the high court declined to grant any relief.
