PLAGIARISM CASE FILED AGAINST KEJRIWAL In a fresh trouble for Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, a Noida-based writer has filed a case of plagiarism against him in a local court. Complainant Ajay Pal Nagar has alleged that Kejriwalâ€™s book Swaraj has copied the contents in his book titled Bharatiya Raj Vyawastha. Nagar claimed that he had presented the book to Kejriwal in March, 2012 and he was appalled to see its content being copied in â€˜Swarajâ€™ that was published in July 2012. The case has been filed before District Judicial Magistrate of Noida and the case has been accepted. The author has said that he had released his book through a Delhi-based publication one year before the release of Swaraj and the plagiarism has been done intentionally by Kejriwal. â€œKejriwal has illegally published my book in his own name and has added some Government documents to mislead the people,â€ the complainant said. Nagar, in his complaint before the court, has alleged that 80 per cent content of Swaraj has been copied from his book which is a clear violation of Copy Right Act. Nagar said he wrote the book Bharatiya Raj Vyawastha in year 2011 and the book was published in February 2012. Later, he sent a copy of the book to Kejriwal on March 26. In June 2012, when Swaraj was released with the author name Arvind Kejriwal, Nagar found that Kejriwal has taken most parts of his book without his consent to do so. He found that many pages, paragraphs and lines of Swaraj are word to word of his book. Earlier the author lodged a complaint in Badalpur police station in December 2012 but no action was initiated against Kejriwal and the matter was almost closed. Nagar then went to Chief District Magistrate Court of Noida where his application under Section 156 (3) of CrPc was taken up by the Magistrate. The complainant has also claimed that Manish Sisodia, a close associate of Kejriwal and a Minister in Delhi Government, has accepted that â€˜the book is written by us but is amalgamation of different articlesâ€™. However, contrary to his claim, the book has the name of Arvind Kejriwal as its author. â€œI wrote the book, Bharatiya Raj Vyawastha, with 10 yearsâ€™ experience of my social life. I met eminent lawyers, socialists, constitutional experts and many more before writing the book. As I was impressed with Arvind Kejriwal and his team during Anna movement, I sent a copy of my book to Kejriwal but he took unfair advantage of it. I have moved court for action against him for exclusive theft and a case under Section 200 of CrPc has been registered against Kejriwal. The court could serve notice to him. If required I will move upper courts for justice,â€ said Nagar. http://www.dailypioneer.com/city/plagiarism-case-filed-against-kejriwal.html]Plagiarism case filed against Kejriwal[/url] *************************************************** One wonders what the Masked.....'Muffler Crusader' has to say about honesty and transparency!
