The Delhi High on Monday stayed summons to Sunita Kejriwal, wife of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, in a case for alleged violation of the provisions of the Representation of the People Act, 1951 by getting herself enrolled on voter lists for two different constituencies..Justice Amit Bansal passed the order and said that the stay on the trial court order will remain in force till February 1, 2024 when the matter will be heard next. "Issue notice. In the meanwhile, there shall be a stay on the impugned order till the next date of hearing," the Court ordered. .Metropolitan Magistrate Arjinder Kaur of the Tis Hazari Court had issued summons to Sunita Kejriwal on August 29, 2023. The order was passed on a plea filed by Delhi Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Harish Khurana.Khurana had filed a complaint against Sunita Kejriwal in 2019 alleging that she is registered as a voter on the electoral rolls of Sahibabad (Ghaziabad constituency) and Chandni Chowk in Delhi, which is in violation of Section 17 of the Representation of the People Act.It was stated she is also liable to be punished for the offences under Section 31 of the Act which deals with making false declarations. .Sunita Kejriwal approached the Court challenging the order issuing summons. Senior Advocate Rebecca John appeared for the petitioner and told the High Court that as per the Representation of People Act, an offence is made out only if a person submits a false declaration and in this case, Khurana has not placed on record anything that proves a false declaration was made. John argued that the summons was issued without proper application of mind. "This is a private complaint. The magistrate, before issuing summons, the least he could have done was check with the election commission," John stated. .Meanwhile, the counsel appearing for the State told the Court that the complaint is barred by limitation. .The Court after considering the submission stayed the trial court order.
