The court had reserved its order on whether to summon Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on a criminal defamation complaint filed against him by a police constable for using “thulla” to describe policemen.

In a television interview, Kejriwal had used the slang “thulla” to refer to a policeman.

The interview prompted two complaints from policemen in different police stations of the city and a defamation case in court. It drew sharp reactions from senior police officials including Delhi’s top cop at that time, BS Bassi.
