Three applications were today filed in the Delhi High Court with one of them seeking to restrain ex-CM Arvind Kejriwal from moving into his new house as a tenant at posh Civil Lines area here.
The remaining two applications seek initiation of contempt and perjury actions against the part owner of the disputed property for allegedly violating court orders, by renting out the premises to Kejriwal.
The applications were mentioned before a Joint Registrar of the High Court who listed the matter before the concerned court for hearing on July 1.
The petitions were filed by Virender Kumar Jain, who claims to have 50 per cent share in the property-No. 4-B, Flag Staff Road, Civil Lines, Delhi, where Kejriwal plans to shift as a tenant.
However, Virender's brother Narender Kumar Jain in reponse to the filing of the applications against him, said, "Since the matter is in the court, it is for the court to decide.
"We will wait for it (court order). There is no point in commenting on the allegations made in the applications," he said referring to the petition filed by his elder brother seeking action against him.
Virender alleged that Narender rented the premises to Kejriwal despite the High Court order of August 14, 2013 directing that status quo be maintained with respect to the property, till the adjudication of disputes.
The petition filed through advocate Girish Aggarwal sought interim ex-parte orders to his brother to immediately remove the former Delhi Chief Minister and his family members from the said property.
He has also sought initiation of contempt of court and perjury proceedings against his brother Narender for violating the high court's earlier order to maintain status quo and for allegedly making false statements about a non-existent Supreme Court order to show himself as sole owner of the property, respectively.
"That Narender Kumar Jain may kindly be restrained from creating any third party rights or parting with possession of the suit property, 50 percent of which at present belongs to the plaintiff as per basket No. 4 of the properties, though not implemented due to the adjudication of the shares," he has said in his petition.
The petitioner further sought action against Kejriwal, if the Aam Aadmi Party leader was found to be aware about the facts, proceedings and injunction orders of the high court.
He has submitted that a suit for partition of properties was filed on March 26, 2012 in the high court and
