Defamation: Court to hear Gehlot's plea on Oct 14

One-liner: A Delhi court will on Oct 14 hear an application filed by Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot against a defamation complaint filed by Union minister Gajendra Singh Shekhawat.

Posted the matter for arguments: Special MP-MLA Court Judge M K Nagpal had on Sept 16 posted the matter for arguments to Oct on the joint request of the advocates representing both Gehlot and Shekhawat. 

Refused to stay proceedings: The judge had earlier refused to stay the proceedings in complaint, but allowed the Congress leader to appear before a metropolitan magistrate through video conference.

Sanjivani scam: A magisterial court is hearing Shekhawat's complaint over Gehlot's remarks linking him to the alleged Sanjivani scam. 

Investors duped: The case is related to thousands of investors allegedly getting duped of about ₹900Cr by the Sanjivani Credit Cooperative Society. 

Trying to tarnish image: Shekhawat, the Union 'Jal Shakti' Minister and MP from Jodhpur, has alleged in his complaint before the metropolitan magistrate that Gehlot has been making defamatory remarks against him over the alleged scam and trying to tarnish his image and affect his political career.
