Cops checking if Kejri’s car dismantled, sold as scrap CM Writes To LG, Says People’s Faith In Law & Order Shaken
New Delhi: A day after a blue WagonR used earlier by chief minister Arvind Kejriwal was stolen from outside his office, police said they had crucial leads in the case. But this didn’t stop Kejriwal from complaining to the LG about the worsening law and order situation in the national capital.
Police said they had deployed six teams from their central district apart from the crime branch and Special Cell to hunt for the car. CCTV feed showed a man dressed in a white shirt and black trousers working the locks in just three to four minutes and driving away the vehicle. Police were trying to find out where the thief was headed by analysing footage from two other came- ras. A team has also been sent to Sotiganj and Meerut to find out if the car has been reduced to scrap already.
DCP (PRO) Madhur Verma said the police had some crucial leads in the case.
But that wasn’t enough for the CM. He wrote a letter to LG Anil Baijal in which he said, “My car was stolen — it’s an insignificant matter. But the theft of the CM’s car from outside Delhi Secreta- riat indicates the deteriorating law and order condition. How can people feel safe in a state where the CM’s car is stolen?” Kejriwal added: “The people of Delhi are feeling increasingly unsafe. Their faith (in law and order) was shaken after yesterday’s incident.” The CM asked the LG to take steps to improve the situation.
AAP member Naveen Jaihind promised a ‘gift’ worth over Rs 10,000 for anyone giving any information about the stolen car. “It was an invaluable, historic car. Even if policemen find this car, I will give a valuable gift to them,” said Jaihind.
The car was registered with Dwarka transport authority in 2005. It was being used by AAP’s media convener Vandana Kumar, but it didn’t have a party sticker.
