New Delhi, July 30 (ANI): Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal is set to appear before the Patiala House Court here today in connection with furnishing false information in an affidavit filed in run up to the 2013 assembly polls.

The court had summoned Kejriwal on July30, saying there was "sufficient ground" to proceed against him on the allegations that he had concealed his address and suppressed the market value of his property in his affidavit filed before the Election Commission.

The court summoned Kejriwal on a criminal complaint filed by Neeraj Saxena on behalf of av NGO, Maulik Bharat Trust.

Earlier, the NGO had approached the Delhi High Court with a plea seeking quashing of Kejriwal's nomination papers on the grounds of "illegalities" in his affidavit.

The high court had refused to entertain the plea and directed him to approach the Metropolitan Magistrate's court. (ANI)
