Aam Aadmi Party leaders Sanjay Singh and Durgesh Pathak have filed a defamation case against party legislator Devinder Sehrawat.

AAP’s Punjab women wing chief Baljinder Kaur on Tuesday had filed a complaint with the state Women Commission against the party’s Delhi MLA Devinder Sehrawat, alleging he was “defaming” the women in the state.

This happened a day after Sehrawat wrote a letter to AAP national convener and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, alleging that women were being exploited on the pretext of tickets to fight Punjab Assembly polls due next year.

A delegation led by Kaur, who is also AAP’s candidate from Talwandi Sabo, met chief of Punjab Women Commission Paramjit Kaur Landra and filed a formal complaint against the Delhi legislator. Kaur said she was hurt after reading Sehrawat’s letter which “was an attempt at defaming the women of Punjab”.
