DDCA to file defamation case against Arvind Kejriwal and Kirti Azad

Delhi's cricket body the Delhi and District Cricket Association (DDCA) has decided to file defamation case against Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal and suspended BJP MP Kirti Azad for "making wild and baseless allegations without any proof."

The DDCA strongly refuted the fresh allegations made by Kirti Azad and AAP leaders and said such wild charges have defamed the organization.

Addressing a press conference where all top DDCA officials were present, acting president Chetan Chauhan said that a lot of "false" charges have been levelled against the state cricket body and it was forced to take legal recourse against those spreading such disinformation.

Treasurer Ravinder Manchanda said that DDCA will file a defamation case against Kejriwal, Azad and all others who were present at the press conference and made the allegations of corruption and financial embezzlement in the DDCA.

Chauhan said that three agencies are already probing the cases against the DDCA and there was no need for a fresh probe to be initiated by the AAP government.
On Tuesday, Kejriwal had alleged that a Delhi and District Cricket Association (DDCA) official has asked for sex in return for selection of cricketers.

The DDCA has strongly denied this charge.
Earlier today, AAP alleged that Arun Jaitley in his capacity as president of DDCA in 2011, had "pressurized" the then police commissioner to "close" an investigation involving a cricket club of a bank.

The party also renewed its demand for Jaitley's resignation in the wake of the "fresh disclosures". The letter to Gupta is dated October 27, 2011 while the one written to Narayan is dated May 5, 2012.
