Shunglu Committee report: Maken seeks arrest of Kejriwal, Govt officials

| | New Delhi

The delegation led by Delhi Pradesh Congress Committee (DPCC) president Ajay Maken on Thursday submitted a complaint to Delhi Police Commissioner Amulya Patnaik, seeking the arrest of Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and Ministers and officials of his Government in connection with the findings of the Shunglu Committee report.

In the run-up to the MCD polls, scheduled to be held on April 23, the Congress has launched a campaign demanding registration of an FIR on the basis of the Shunglu Committee report, the content of which has been brought to the public domain by Maken through an RTI application.

“The delegation demanded that a case be registered against Kejriwal and ministers and officials of his government who have been indicted in the Shunglu Committee report,” Maken told reporters after meeting the Police Commissioner.

He added that all the 272 Congress candidates for the MCD polls have lodged similar complaints at respective police stations across the city. Maken said if the police failed to lodge a case against Kejriwal and others, his party will approach the court for the same.
