A Delhi court has issued a notice to Sunita Kejriwal, wife of Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal. BJP leader Harish Khurana has claimed that the CM's wife has two voter ID cards.

The troubles of Sunita Kejriwal, wife of Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal, may increase. The court has issued summons to Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's wife and sought her reply for allegedly violating the Representation of the People Act, 1951, by registering her name in the voter lists of two different constituencies.

Metropolitan Magistrate Arjinder Kaur of Tis Hazari court has issued this summons on the petition of Delhi Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Harish Khurana. He said that after considering the testimony of the complainant and other witnesses, the court believes that prima facie a case is made out against accused Sunita Kejriwal.

Now the matter will be heard on 18 November 2023. Khurana had filed a complaint against Sunita Kejriwal in 2019 alleging that she was registered as a voter in the voter list of Sahibabad (Ghaziabad constituency) and Chandni Chowk in Delhi in violation of Section 17 of the Representation of the People Act. He said she could also be punished for offenses under Section 31 of the Act which deals with making false declarations.
