New Delhi: Senior Congress leader Digvijay Singh on Thursday urged Aam Aadmi Party`s chief Arvind Kejriwal to help him in “exposing” BJP`s former party president Nitin Gadkari.

Kejriwal was on Wednesday sent to judicial custody in a defamation case filed by Gadkari.

On microblogging website Twitter, Singh tweeted:

Kejriwal, 45, was first sent to a lock-up in the court complex before being taken in a police van to the Tihar Central Jail, where a large number of Aam Aadmi Party workers promptly staged a noisy protest.

Metropolitan Magistrate Gomati Manocha had ordered the two-day judicial custody after Kejriwal, accused of slandering Gadkari by calling him "corrupt", refused to furnish a bail bond of Rs 10,000.
