Arvind Kejriwal escapes unhurt as car meets minor accident


Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal on Friday escaped unhurt when the SUV in which he was travelling rammed into an escort vehicle near PAP chowk on Jalandhar-Amritsar road.

Kejriwal, who was on his way to Amritsar on the second day of his four-day visit to Punjab, was sitting in the front seat of the Innova when it hit the escort vehicle which was moving ahead of it, police said.

No one was injured in the mishap. The bumper of Kejriwal’s car was damaged, they said.

Besides Kejriwal, others in his car were AAP leaders Bhagwant Mann and Gurpreet Ghuggi.

Kejriwal is on a four-day tour of Punjab to give a push to Aam Aadmi Party’s poll campaign.

He carried on with his journey to Amritsar where he will pay obeisance at the Golden Temple, a party spokesman said.
