2017 defamation case: Kapil Mishra apologises to Satyender Jain

Oct 29, 2020 17:08 IST

BJP leader Kapil Mishra on Thursday tendered an unconditional apology to Delhi Health Minister Satyender Jain, before a Delhi court. The apology was tendered by the former AAP leader for levelling graft allegations against Jain shortly after he was expelled by the ruling party in Delhi in 2017. Jain had filed a criminal defamation case against Mishra in May of that year after the BJP leader accused him of giving a bribe to Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on May 5. Mishra was summoned in this case and charges were also framed against him for punishment for defamation. On Wednesday, the BJP leader told a Special MP/MLA court that he is ‘ready to make the statement before the court tendering unconditional apology’. The Delhi health minister told the court if Mishra ‘makes the statement before the court he shall withdraw his complaint’.
