Sheila wants to settle defamation case with BJP
Former Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit on Saturday favoured a settlement in a defamation case filed by her against BJP leader Vijender Gupta in a city court, which referred the matter for mediation. “Since complainant (Dikshit) is ready to settle the matter with the accused (Gupta), let the matter be referred to Mediation Cell, Saket Court complex for the purpose of settlement,” Metropolitan Magistrate Anu Aggarwal said.
The court also directed both the parties to appear before the Mediation Cell on October 17. Dikshit had alleged that the BJP leader had used “uncivilised language” against her in the run up to the MCD polls in 2012.
