Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Friday said that his council of ministers had sought time with Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal after the Delhi Police raided his house earlier today.
In a series of tweets, Kejriwal wrote, ” They’ve sent police to my house. My house is being thoroughly searched. This is very good. But when will you grill Amit Shah in Judge Loya’s case?”
In another tweet, Kejriwal wrote, “Council of Ministers has sought an appointment to meet Hon’ble LG today.”
This was after Delhi Police on Friday raided the official residence of Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal in connection with the alleged assault on Chief Secretary Anshu Prakash. The raids, according to sources, were conducted to obtain the CCTV footage after the cops failed to recover it from the PWD department.
This is the first time Delhi Police has conducted raids at Kejriwal’s residence.
“We came to recover CCTV’s footage as PWD officials were not providing the footage which is the technical evidence and there is a possibility that it will get hamper,” a senior police officer was quoted by Indian Express. Forensic experts too were also at the site.
Reacting to the development, AAP government’s media advisor, Arunoday Prakash said, “There is minimum courtesy in democracy. Every citizen has rights under constitution. Is it an attempt to humiliate a CM who is working tirelessly for the poor and the last man of the society?”
The AAP government’s media advisor had earlier said, “CM house taken over by police. Huge number of police force enters CM house without any intimation. Police Raj kills democracy in Delhi. Police spread all over inside CM house. If this what they can to do an elected CM, think what they can with poor people.”
Earlier this week, a leaked CCTV footage from Kejriwal’s house in Civil Lines area had shown Prakash leave the house at 11.30 PM. This was in sharp contradiction to his medical report, which claimed that he was attacked after midnight.
