Manish Sisodia in apex court to quash criminal defamation case, SC to hear on Monday

SC to hear Manish Sisodia's plea

The Supreme court on Monday will hear a petition by Delhi deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia seeking quashing of the proceedings of a criminal defamation case against him by Assam chief minister Himanta Biswa Sarma.

Earlier on November 7, The  Gauhati high court had dismissed Manish Sisodia’s plea and said “ he has not been able to make out any case for quashing the lower court case.”

Assam chief minister Himanta Biswa Sarma has filed a defamation case against Manish in Kamrup district chief judicial magistrate’s court alleging that Manish in a press conference in New Delhi on June 4 accused him of indulging in corruption while supplying PPE kits in the state in 2020.
