Delhi minister claims Kejriwal’s security detail leaked, seeks probe

New Delhi, Sep 9 (IANS) Delhi Health Minister Satyendar Jain told the assembly on Friday that he will seek a probe from Delhi Police into the alleged leak of security detail of Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.

Jain was responding to the issue raised by Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) legislator from Laxmi Nagar Nitin Tyagi during the special assembly session. Tyagi asked why action was not taken against those protesting against Kejriwal at the New Delhi railway station on Thursday and demanded a proper probe into the issue.

The BJP Mahila Morcha had staged a demonstration here at the New Delhi railway station against Kejriwal when he was about to leave for Punjab.

Jain said that “manhandling” and “attack” on Kejriwal at railway station was “pre-planned” and came a day after security details of the chief minister came in the media ahead of his visit to Punjab.

He said that giving out security details of chief minister and of his tour programme to Punjab was “a serious issue” and he will ask Delhi Police Commissioner to probe the matter. Security details of chief minister should not be shared, he stressed.

Tourism Minister Kapil Mishra said: “Whatever happened yesterday (Thursday) has diminished the image of Indian Railway as well as of the country”.

“How is it possible that such huge gathering of protesters were allowed to reach the platform and managed to manhandle the CM?” he asked.
