The High Court of Delhi on Wednesday stayed the summon orders issued by a trial court against BJP MP Parvesh Sahib Singh Verma in a defamation case filed by Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia over alleged corruption charges.

The Single-Judge Bench of Justice Dinesh Kumar Sharma issued notice on the plea that challenged the order passed by an Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate (ACMM) on November 28, 2019.
The High Court, while staying the trial court proceedings against Verma, fixed March 10 as the next date of hearing in the matter.
The ACMM had issued summon against BJP leaders Parvesh Sahib Singh Verma, Hans Raj Hans, Manjinder Singh Sisra, Manoj Kumar Tiwari, Vijender Gupta, and Harish Khurana under Section 500 (punishment for defamation) read with Section 34 (common intention) of the Indian Penal Code.

The case pertains to 2019, when Sisodia had filed defamation suit against six BJP leaders after they alleged that the Deputy Chief Minister, who was also Delhi’s Education Minister, had indulged in corruption, while building classrooms in government schools of Delhi.
