Metropolitan Magistrate Akash Jain fixed the matter for pre-summoning evidence on request of the complainants, AAP and its member Dinesh Mohania, who sought more time to prove their allegations that the accused had defamed them by making a false and forged video.
"Complainant and his counsel request for giving a date for leading pre-summoning evidence (PSE) in the present matter in order to prove his allegations against the accused persons. On request, fix the matter for PSE on March 19, 2014," the court said.
Advocate V K Ohri, who appeared for complainants, alleged that the video of sting operation against the party has been forged and tampered with due to which charges under Sections 464 (making a false document) and 469 (forgery for purpose of harming reputation) of the IPC are also made out.

On November 27, 2013, the magistrate had said that he would go through the plea first before proceeding ahead with the complaint case.
Ohri had on that day alleged that the doctored CD was shown on TV to defame the party and its candidates prior to the Delhi Assembly polls.

He had also alleged that Congress and BJP does not want AAP to ‘gain momentum’ before the upcoming polls and the media portal circulated the CD containing defamatory allegations against the party and its candidates.
