The Delhi Police on Thursday arrested eight people for vandalising the residence of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal. A look out notice has been issued for some more people and six teams of Delhi police are engaged in finding the other accused.
“Eight persons were identified through CCTV footage as taking part in the protest outside Mr. Kejriwal’s house by Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM) workers against the Chief Minister’s remarks on ‘The Kashmir Files’ in the Assembly.”
The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MLA Saurabh Bharadwaj moved the Delhi High Court against the alleged attack and vandalisation of the official residence of CM Arvind Kejriwal on March 30. Saurabh, in his plea, sought the constitution of a Special Investigation Team (SIT) to undertake an independent, free and fair probe into the matter.
Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia said that the whole incident was a pre planned conspiracy of BJP to get Arvind Kejriwal killed.
However, BJP MP Tejasvi Surya, who led the group of workers to protest against Kejriwal said that the Yuva Morcha demonstrated against him for his statement regarding the massacre of Kashmiri Hindus.
“BJP Yuva Morcha demonstrated against Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal’s ridicule for the massacre of Kashmiri Hindus. Yuva Morcha demands an unconditional apology from Kejriwal. The Yuva Morcha’s protests will continue till they apologise. It has been the policy of the Aam Aadmi Party to make fun of Ram Mandir, to joke about Hindu deities, to question Batla House, to question surgical strikes.”BJP MP Tejasvi Surya
