The complainant, an advocate, has sought Kejriwal's prosecution under sections 124A (sedition) and 500 (defamation) of the IPC.
    
The plea was filed at Tis Hazari Courts and it would come up for hearing on January 4, 2016. Advocate Pradeep Kumar Dwivedi has in his complaint alleged that when CBI raided the Chief Minister's Principal Secretary Rajendra Kumar's Delhi Secretariat office on December 15, Kejriwal made offensive remarks on his Twitter account against Modi.
    
"Being fully aware of the autonomy and independence of the CBI, the accused (Kejriwal) owing to his personal interest and political enmity, made some offended remarks on his Twitter account towards the Prime Minister of this country, just because of the said raid by the CBI," the complaint said.
