The Gujarat High Court on Tuesday refused to grant an urgent hearing to Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leaders Arvind Kejriwal and Sanjay Singh on pleas seeking to quash summons in a criminal defamation case filed over their remarks on Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s educational degree.


Delhi Chief Minister Kejriwal and AAP Rajya Sabha member Singh have challenged before the HC the September 14 order of the sessions court dismissing their revision applications against the trial court’s summons in the criminal defamation case filed by the Gujarat University.

Justice Samir Dave refused to grant priority hearing to the matter listed in the HC on Tuesday after Kejriwal’s advocate Percy Kavina mentioned it with a request to take it up on an urgent basis.
