NEW DELHI: Arvind Kejriwal, on Monday, demanded the arrest of BJP MP Maheish Girri in the murder case of New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC) official MM Khan. He also blamed the Modi government for sheilding him in the case.
Kejriwal tweeted that:
the BJP MP should be “arrested and interrogated by Modi police in MM Khan murder case. Modi police shielding him”.
Maheish Girri has been sitting on a hunger strike outside the Delhi chief minister’s residence since Sunday evening, saying that the CM has levelled baseless allegations regarding his involvement in the murder case.
On Monday morning, Subramanian Swamy also joined Giri’s protest, saying “I have come here to support Maheish Girri because CM Kejriwal has levelled baseless allegations against him”.
Kejriwal, in his letter to Lieutenant Governor Najeeb Jung, had accused him of trying to save the BJP MP.
MM Khan was shot dead in Jamia Nagar on May 16, a day before he was scheduled to pass the final order on the lease terms of a hotel which was functioning on a property leased out by the civic body.
