In an application filed before CMM Sanjay Khangwal, Jaitley sought summoning of records of DDCA for the relevant period in which he was the President of the cricketing body. Jaitley was the president of DDCA between December 1999 and December 2013.

The court after hearing brief submissions allowed Jaitley's plea. The court is currently recording pre-summoning evidence in the criminal defamation complaint filed by Jaitley, who had recorded his statement before the CMM in support of his plea on January 5.

During recording of his statement, Jaitley had told the court that Kejriwal and five other AAP leaders--Kumar Vishwas, Ashutosh, Sanjay Singh, Raghav Chadha and Deepak Bajpai-- had made "false and defamatory" statements and rejected the charge that he had siphoned out money from DDCA for his own benefit.

He had said he had not received any money from anybody during his tenure as president of DDCA. He has accused them of making statements damaging his reputation even after the complaint was filed against them and that their statements against him and his family members had lowered his dignity in the eyes of the public at large.
