The Supreme Court Tuesday directed Delhi BJP MP Manoj Tiwari to file an affidavit within a week in connection with a case against him for breaking the lock of a house sealed by the East Delhi Municipal Corporation (EDMC) in Gokulpur, PTI reported.

The apex court had issued a contempt notice to Tiwari last week in this regard and directed him to appear before it today.

The court also directed  Tiwari to explain his claims that he made regarding sealings in Delhi to a news channel.

The Delhi Police had registered a case against Tiwari after EDMC filed a complaint, citing news reports that the northeast Delhi MP had tampered with the seal of a dairy that was shut down for running illegally. It was allegedly operating in violation of the Delhi Master Plan, the EDMC said.
