Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal on Friday announced the sacking of his Minority Affairs Minister Asim Ahmed Khan on a charge of seeking a Rs 6 lakh bribe from a builder, and promptly handed the case over to the CBI.
Kejriwal, whose Aam Aadmi Party registered a landslide win in the Delhi elections in February on the anti-corruption plank, also said that even if his son was found indulging in corruption he too would not be spared.
Asim Khan later told media that he was a victim of some conspiracy hatched by his opponents. He said he will reveal what he termed was the real story on Saturday.
