New Delhi: Amid the raging row over foreign nations commenting on Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s arrest in the excise policy case, it has emerged that a Bangladesh-based journalist, Mushfiqul Fazal Ansarey, posed questions to the US and UN spokespersons, prompting answers on these lines.

Ansarey made a deliberate attempt to elicit anti-India statements by posing questions on Kejriwal’s arrest and the freezing of Congress' bank accounts.

It has emerged that the Bangladeshi scribe questioned the US State Department’s spokesperson Mathew Millar on March 27 and posed the same question to the spokesperson of the United Nations on March 28.

Row Around Kejriwal's Arrest

Notably, Arvind Kejriwal’s arrest by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) on alleged money laundering charges in the excise policy case sparked a political slugfest in the country, besides garnering global attention, as a German diplomat and the spokespersons of the US and UN made a mention of it in their speeches while expressing hope for a 'fair trial' in the case.
