New Delhi : The Delhi Police on Wednesday sent a notice to Arvind Kejriwal to join the probe in Chief Secretary Anshu Prakash assault case, drawing a sharp reaction from AAP which alleged that Prime Minister Narendra Modi was “misusing” the police to “bother” the Chief Minister.
A senior police officer said that the notice was sent to Kejriwal on Wednesday to join the investigations on May 18 at 11 AM.
The notice said, “You (Kejriwal) are required to attend investigation and be available at your residence/office on May 18 at 11 AM. In the event, such timing is not convenient to you due to official exigencies, kindly intimate an alternate time.”
Kejriwal, however, has not responded to the notice, the official said.
Opposition BJP said that it hoped Kejriwal would cooperate in the police investigation instead of doing politics over the matter.
There is also a possibility that the police may ask Kejriwal’s deputy Manish Sisodia to join the investigation after the chief minister.
