    Jethmalani quits as Kejriwal’s counsel, seeks Rs 2 crore fee

    New Delhi: Senior advocate Ram Jethmalani has quit as Arvind Kejrwal’s counsel in civil and criminal defamation cases filed by Union finance minister Arun Jaitley against the Delhi CM.

    Jethmalanis decision came after Kejriwal denied asking the lawyer to use derogatory words against Jaitley in court.

    In a letter to Kejriwal, Jethmalani has also asked that his legal fees, which are more than Rs 2 crore, be settled.

    “I am not going to divulge the details of the letters,” Jethmalani told media.

    In his affidavit, Kejriwal said it was “inconceivable that he would even think of instructing the senior counsel to use such objectionable words.”

    On May 18, Jethmalani had called the finance minister a “crook” in court following which Jaitley filed a fresh Rs 10-crore suit against Kejriwal.
