Kejriwal’s car that earned him ‘aam aadmi’ identity stolen

A Blue Wagon R car earlier used by Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal was allegedly stolen from outside the Delhi Secretariat on Thursday.

Mandeep Singh Randhawa, Deputy Commissioner of Police (Central), said, “We received a call around 3.31pm on Thursday regarding theft of a blue colour Wagon R with registration number DL-9CG-9769. On enquiry, it was found that the car was being used by one Vandana of the Media Cell of the Aam Aadmi Party. Prior to this, the car earlier belonged to the Delhi CM.” The car was donated to Kejriwal by Kundan Sharma, a software engineer, in January 2013.

A senior investigator said the humble blue hatchback, which became synonymous with Kejriwal’s “aam aadmi” image, was being used by an AAP functionary these days.

“The car was parked outside the Delhi Secretariat. It went missing around 1 pm,” a senior police official said.

Police said they have registered a case under the Motor Vehicles Act at the IP Estate police station. The senior officer said that they are scanning the footage of the CCTV cameras installed in and around the Delhi Secretariat to find out who stole the car.
