Vishwas had taken to social media to inform how a team from the Punjab Police had arrived at his house in Ghaziabad in Uttar Pradesh.
Vishwas had accused AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal of a secret pact with Khalistani elements just before the assembly polls. Reacting to the visit by a team of the Punjab Police, he had written, “The Punjab Police have arrived at my house this morning. I am warning Bhagwant Mann, who I was responsible for bringing to the (AAP) party. You are allowing a man sitting in Delhi to play with the power vested in you by the people of Punjab. He (Arvind Kejriwal) will betray you and Punjab in the future. Just remember my warning.”
Vishwas was later accorded a ‘Y’ category security cover the Centre’s Narendra Modi government.
