A Delhi court would March 29 consider an application opposing a police plea to withdraw a case against Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit over an alleged election code violation in 2008.

Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Amit Bansal Tuesday said: “Put up for consideration of locus standi of the application for March 29.”

The application was filed by Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Vijay Jolly.

The court was hearing a complaint by Samajwadi Party candidate Om Prakash alleging that Dikshit violated the election code of conduct by using loudspeakers without permission during the poll campaign in November 2008.

On Feb 6, police moved an application for withdrawing the case, saying that no loudspeakers or accessories were seized during investigations.

Jolly, who contested against Dikshit in the Gole Market constituency in the 2008 assembly elections, opposed the withdrawal of the case against her by police.

He filed his application Feb 29 and alleged that the “prosecution is under pressure” from Dikshit.

The court directed Jolly to supply a copy of his application to the prosecution and Dikshit.

The court also directed Jolly to present some documents to support his application.
