withdrawal of a poll code violation case of 2008 against Delhi
Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit could be heard at all.
Metropolitan Magistrate Vijeta Singh reserved the order
saying he was "prima facie" satisfied that the plea for
withdrawal of the case was maintainable and could be heard

the state, the court is satisfied with the maintainability of
application under section 321 (withdrawal from prosecution) of
the CrPC. The view, however, is only prima facie...list for
orders on April 19," the court said.
The court also reserved its order for April 19 on the
plea of BJP leader Vijay Jolly who had sought to intervene in
the proceedings and oppose the police plea saying he had been
directly affected in the matter as he had lost the 2008
assembly polls against Dikshit.
During the hearing, Jolly`s application was opposed by
the prosecutor who said it would lead to a "situation of
anarchy" if everybody is allowed to intervene in the case at
"It is only the prosecutor who can be heard at this stage
otherwise a situation of anarchy will arise," the prosecutor
The court had earlier asked the prosecutor to explain his
"locus" in filing the application for withdrawal of the case
