The case came up because Khetan, while campaigning for the party ahead of assembly elections in Punjab, compared the AAP manifesto with Sikh scripture Guru Granth Sahib.
This led to an outrage prompting Khetan to later apologise for his comments. The ruling Shiromani Akali Dal also picked the issue and accused AAP of insulting the holy book.
