New Delhi:

Raghav Chadha of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has challenged his defeat from Delhi in the national election in the High Court.

Raghav Chadha contested the polls from South Delhi, where he lost to the BJP's Ramesh Bidhuri.

His petition asks the court to set aside the BJP candidate's win for concealing a criminal case and declare him the winner.

Raghav Chadha accuses Mr Bidhuri of hiding the fact that an FIR had been filed against him in Bihar over a derogatory speech. The AAP leader's petition also alleges that Mr Bidhuri made false declarations in his election affidavit.
