A Delhi court is gearing up to address a significant legal matter involving Union Minister Gajendra Singh Shekhawat and Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot. The court’s Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate, Harjeet Singh Jaspal, has scheduled the hearing for September 14, 2023.
The development comes after Gehlot, represented via video conference, confirmed that he has received all the requested documents related to the case. The court took note of this and proceeded accordingly.

“It is informed on behalf of the complainant that the documents, in their entirety have already been sent through e-mail, including colored copies. Counsel for the accused has acknowledged the receipt of e-mail. It is also acknowledged that the certified copies have also been received through the Copying Agency (of court). Since the documents are now complete, let the matter be put for arguments on notice/further proceedings on September 14, 2023,” the judge said.
During the proceedings, Gajendra Singh Shekhawat, the complainant, also appeared via video conference. The case stems from Shekhawat’s complaint against Congress leader Ashok Gehlot, who allegedly made defamatory remarks linking the Union Minister to the Sanjivani scam.
The Sanjivani Scam
The Sanjivani scam revolves around thousands of investors who were reportedly duped of approximately Rs 900 crore by the Sanjivani Credit Cooperative Society. The society promised these investors highly lucrative returns, but the funds seemingly vanished, leaving investors in financial distress.
This case has garnered significant attention due to the political implications surrounding it. As the legal proceedings unfold, it remains to be seen how the court will adjudicate this defamation complaint and the broader allegations related to the Sanjivani scam.
