Court allows withdrawal of case against Dikshit

A court here Wednesday allowed the withdrawal of a case against Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit for alleged violation of the election code of conduct in 2008.

"The complaint is dismissed as withdrawn. The accused (Dikshit) is acquitted," said Metropolitan Magistrate Vijeta Singh. 

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

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

The court April 19 had rejected an intervening application filed by Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Vijay Jolly. Jolly had opposed the withdrawal of the case against Dikshit.
