Kejriwal's apology to Majithia came on the day the Special Task Force, probing the drug trade racket, submitted its report to the Punjab and Haryana High Court.
Bikram Majithia who was named kingpin of synthetic drug trade in Punjab said "This proves that they were raking up the issue to tarnish my image and harm me and gain politically".
However, in his apology to Majithia, the Delhi chief minister said he had learnt that his allegations were unfounded. "Hence, there should be no politics on such issues", Kejriwal said in a statement.
"I hereby withdraw all my statements and allegations made against you and apologize for the same", Kejriwal said in a letter, adding that he has now learnt that the allegations were "unfounded" and the damage caused to Majithia's esteem and the loss caused to him was regretted. Reacting to Kejriwal's apology, Majithia had said that he accepted the AAP convenor's apology. Disclosing this on Thursday, Majithia claimed he was grateful that truth had won and Kejriwal had realised his mistake.
Mr Majithia had filed a defamation case against Kejriwal and two other AAP leaders, Sanjay Singh and Ashish Khetan, in May 2016 after they repeatedly targeted him over the problem of drugs in Punjab while campaigning for the Punjab Assembly elections.
Accusing Majithia of playing with the youth of Punjab by "unleashing narco-terrorism in the state", Kejriwal had once declared that he would "drag" the then Punjab cabinet minister "by his collar" to jail for his alleged role in a multi-million rupee drug racket.
However, the move drew flak from the Aam Aadmi Party's (AAP) Punjab unit leaders who termed it a "meek surrender" and a "letdown" for the party.
Another senior AAP leader Kanwar Sandhu also reacted sharply. This defamation case is only one of the series of such cases he has accumulated since entering politics. Jaitley had filed defamation cases after Kejriwal and AAP leaders alleged irregularities in Delhi District Cricket Administration (DDCA), of which the BJP leader was the president.
It remains to be seen if Arvind Kejriwal will issue an apology to Finance Minister Arun Jaitley too, as the latter has filed a defamation suit against Kejriwal for putting false allegations on him.
