In his plea, Chandra, chairman of the Essel group, has alleged that Mr Kejriwal, while addressing a press conference on November 11 had made "false, fabricated and defamatory allegations" against him.
The complaint, which is likely to come up for hearing tomorrow, sought Chief Minister's prosecution under section 500 (defamation) of Indian Penal Code.
The complaint, filed through advocate Vijay Aggarwal, claimed that Mr Kejriwal "defamed the complainant (Chandra) by making inherently defamatory statements and caused serious harm to his reputation by imputing behavior incompatible with proper conduct and suggestions of involvement in illegal activity."
The complaint claimed that Mr Kejriwal, while addressing the press conference, "without any lawful basis or justification, dragged the name of the complainant in the entire facade, which has defamed and lowered the reputation of complainant in the eyes of general public and thus accused person (Kejriwal) has committed the offence of criminal defamation."
