The Delhi Police on Friday questioned Aam Aadmi Party leader and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal in Chief Secretary Anshu Prakash assault case.

The questioning took place at the Chief Minister’s residence at Civil Lines. Kejriwal wanted the questioning to be done in front of CCTV cameras but the cops did not agree.

After the questioning Additional DCP Harinder Singh told reporters, “We questioned the Delhi CM for 3 hours. He has been cooperative, but he evaded some questions. He had requested a copy of the video recording but we have denied his request.”

AAP has termed the questioning a political witch hunt. While the questioning was on, AAP leader Ashish Khetan tweeted, “A 5 member Delhi Police team has been questioning for the last 3 hours. What is his crime? Has he done a scam? Did he steal public money? Did he order fake encounters? Did he orchestrate riots? Did he give bank loans to his cronies?”

Kejriwal published a statement soon after the questioning. The Delhi CM alleged that LG had asked Delhi Police to target him as BJP led Centre was insecure of the Delhi Government because if the good job Delhi Government has been doing in the fields of education, health, electricity and water.

He said that multiple cases were lodged against him, his MLAs, party leaders and relatives which were being rejected in the courts one by one.

Thanking the police for questioning him in a good environment, Kejriwal said the cops were under extreme pressure to lodge false cases against him.
