M Dogra, Jaitley’s counsel said “In the civil case, we’ll agree to a decree in the matter based on apology and the acceptance thereof,”
Jaitley had filed an Rs 10-crore defamation suit against Kejriwal and five other AAP leaders — Raghav Chadha, Kumar Vishwas, Sanjay Singh, Ashutosh and Deepak Bajpai. All six alleged financial irregularities in the Delhi and District Cricket Association (DDCA) when Jaitley was its president.
Kejriwal and his colleagues wrote in the apology to Jaitley “These allegations made by me were based on information and papers furnished to me by certain individuals who represented to have first-hand insight into the affairs of DDCA. However, I have recently discovered that the information and the imputations contained therein are unfounded and warranted and I was clearly misinformed into making these allegations, I offer my sincere apology to you and your family members for any harm caused to your reputation as a consequence of my allegations, end the unsavory litigations between us” the AAP leaders’ joint apology further said.
Kejriwal’s apology spree began last month, with “sorries” to the BJP’s Nitin Gadkari, the Congress party’s Kapil Sibal and the Akali Dal’s Bikram Singh Majithia.
