New Delhi: A court here discharged Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal, his deputy Manish Sisodia and others on Wednesday in a case of allegedly violating prohibitory orders and obstructing public servants during an agitation in 2014.

Besides Mr Kejriwal and Mr Sisodia, additional chief metropolitan magistrate Samar Vishal also granted relief to other Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leaders, Kumar Vishwas, Gopal Rai, Sanjay Singh and Dilip Pandey.

Former AAP members Prashant Bhushan and Yogendra Yadav and others were also granted the relief.

There does not exist sufficient evidence to take cognisance of the offence as alleged as well as sufficient grounds to proceed against the accused persons, the court said.

According to the chargesheet, on January 21, 2014 the accused broke the barricades and indulged in scuffle with the police and stone pelting in order to run towards Rail Bhawan, violating section 144  CrPC, which was in place at that time.
