The Delhi Court on Wednesday told Aam Aadmi Party‘s East Delhi candidate Atishi to give more proofs and documents to support her claim about BJP Nominee Candidate Gautam Gambhir for allegedly possessing dual voter ID Cards.

Metropolitan Magistrate Viplav Dabas hearing the plea asked Atishi, “How you are affected by this? If he has committed any wrong, what’s your locus?”

Atishi’s counsel Advocate Karuna Nundy submitted before the Court that Candidature of Bharatiya Janata Party Delhi East Candidate Gautam Gambhir should be rejected.

Earlier, the Aam Aadmi Party accused Gautam Gambhir of having two voter ID Cards. Aam Aadmi Party Candidate from Delhi East Lok Sabha Seat Atishi on Friday took to Twitter and accused Gambhir of having two voter ID Cards.

AAP alleged that Gambhir possesses two voter ID Cards – one from Karol Bagh and one from Rajendra Nagar. Atishi had last week filed a criminal complaint in the trial court against cricketer & BJP candidate Gautam Gambhir on the issue.

However, Gautam Gambhir dismissed the allegations levelled by AAP of having two voter ID cards. “I have only one voter-ID, from Rajendra Nagar. I don’t have any other voter-ID,” Gautam Gambhir said on Tuesday.

Gautam Gambhir in a run-up to the national elections in pitched against AAP’s Atishi, while Congress has named Arvinder Singh Lovely for the East Delhi Lok Sabha Seat.
