New Delhi: 

A Delhi court has granted bail to AAP leaders Atishi and others in a defamation case filed by the BJP against them for their remarks over deletion of voters' names from electoral rolls in the city.

Aam Aadmi Party's Rajya Sabha member Sushil Kumar Gupta, legislator Manoj Kumar were also granted relief on a personal bond of Rs 10,000 each after the three appeared before the court.

However, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal failed to appear before the court today. The court has ordered him to appear before it on July 16.

BJP leader Rajeev Babbar, who moved the petition on behalf of the party's Delhi unit, sought proceedings against them for "harming" the reputation of the BJP by blaming it for the deletion of the names of "voters" from electoral rolls.

He claimed that the Aam Aadmi Party leaders had, during a press conference held in December last year, alleged that on the directions of the BJP, names of 30 lakh voters from Bania, Poorvanchali and the Muslim community had been deleted by the Election Commission.
