Delhi High Court

New Delhi: The Delhi Police on Friday told the High Court here that it has taken suo moto cognizance of the alleged attack outside Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s residence and registered an FIR.

Last Wednesday, members of the BJP youth wing had allegedly vandalized property outside the residence of Kejriwal, also the Aam Aadmi Party national convenor, during a protest against his remarks on the film ‘The Kashmir Files’.

Additional Solicitor General Sanjay Jain, appearing for the Delhi Police and the central government, said that all steps were being taken to address the concerns and all the evidence, including the CCTV footage from cameras around the chief minister’s residence, as well as the arterial roads, will be preserved. He said that eight people had already been arrested and an investigation was underway.

A bench of Acting Chief Justice Vipin Sanghi and Navin Chawla, which was hearing a petition by AAP MLA Saurabh Bhardwaj, granted time to the Delhi Police to file its status report on the ongoing investigation in a sealed cover.

Bhardwaj, in his petition through advocate Bharat Gupta, has asked for a Special Investigation Team to probe the alleged attack and argued that the vandalization appears to have been carried out with the Delhi Police’s ‘tacit complicity’.
