New Delhi: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, who was heading towards Union Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde’s office for a dharna demanding action against Delhi Police, was stopped by the police at Rail Bhavan on Monday.

“As of now they do not have the permission to leave from Rail Bhavan,” said Mukesh Kumar Meera, Joint Commissioner of Delhi Police.

The party is demanding action against Delhi Police personnel for alleged dereliction of duty.

Party leader Sanjay Singh made it clear yesterday that AAP will stage the protest if no action is taken against the police officers.

Mr Kejriwal, accompanied by Cabinet colleagues Manish Sisodia, Somnath Bharti and Rakhi Birla, had met Mr Shinde on Friday and demanded suspension of the “guilty” policemen by 10 AM today, failing which they would protest in front of the Home Ministry’s office.

AAP is demanding the suspension of the station house officers (SHO) of Sagarpur and Malviya Nagar police stations and two assistant commissioners of police.
