The New Indian Express - - INDIA - ANKUR SHARMA @ New Delhi TWIT­TER

THE iconic blue WagonR of Delhi chief min­is­ter Arvind Ke­jri­wal was stolen from his of­fice on Thurs­day af­ter­noon. The car was used by Ke­jri­wal when he be­came CM for 49 days. Af­ter that, peo­ple termed it the ‘Aam Aadmi car’. Later, he gave the car to Van­dana Singh, a cadre of the party, as of­fi­cially it be­longed to the party.

Van­dana Singh, who went to the CM’s of­fice for some work, had parked it out­side the Delhi sec­re­tar­iat around 12 pm. “I got to know about the theft when I came out from the sec­re­tar­iat and searched for my car around 2 pm. When I didn’t see the car, I went back and alerted a se­cu­rity of­fi­cer who tried to iden­tify the ac­cused with the help of CCTV cam­eras,” Van­dana Singh said.

“One footage showed that some­one was driv­ing my car but it was not very clear. Later, I made a PCR call around 3.51 pm and went to the po­lice sta­tion,” she added. Van­dana Singh said she was us­ing the car for al­most two years.

“We have reg­is­tered a case against un­known per­sons and soon the ac­cused will be ar­rested. We are analysing CCTV footage of nearby ar­eas,” DCP cen­tral Man­deep Singh Rand­hawa said.

The car was seen as proof of Ke­jri­wal’s ‘aam aadmi’ im­age as he ini­tially re­fused to avail of a govern­ment ve­hi­cle and used to travel in the car for of­fi­cial as well as per­sonal pur­poses.
