We had made all security arrangements as per practice: Delhi Police


Delhi police has denied claims by Aam Aadmi Party leaders that there was no adequate security provided the city cops for the rally attended by Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Sunday.

Delhi police’s PRO, Rajan Bhagat told ANI, ” We had made all security arrangements at the level as per the practice. One armed company was deployed besides local police, personal security was provided to Delhi CM.”

Bhagat rubbished the allegations of conspiracy against Delhi Police calling them unfounded. He said that Delhi police had registered a case against the woman attacker identified as Bhavna Arora and ‘every aspect of the case will be looked into.’

A woman claiming to be a member of AAP’s rival group Aam Aadmi Sena had walked to the close proximity of Kejriwal and succeeded in throwing ink on him without facing much resistance from the police at the venue.

Several AAP leaders including the deputy chief minister of Delhi Manish Sisodia had blamed poor security arrangements for this attack.

Sisodia had said that such lapses in security for a CM had the potential to endanger the life of AAP convener.

AAP supporters had taken to microblogging site twitter to express their outrage against what they said was incompetent Delhi police.
