Arvind Kejriwal accuses Delhi Police officer of misbehaviour, AAP lodges complaint

Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) Arvind Kejriwal has said that a Delhi police officer who had reportedly physically assaulted former deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia on the grounds of a city court had now misbehaved with him.

In an application filed in Delhi’s Rouse Avenue Court, the AAP chairman requested that the officer be taken out of his security cordon.

Kejriwal, who was detained by the Enforcement Directorate in connection with the liquor policy case, asserts in the application that Assistant Commissioner of Police AK Singh mistreated him during his transport to the court for his hearing in connection with the agency’s earlier Friday remand request. It is currently unknown what the alleged misbehavior entailed.

Singh is the same police officer who was charged with choking  Sisodia by the neck while he was being questioned by reporters on the court’s property the previous year. Sisodia had submitted a formal complaint, and the conduct had been captured on camera. The Delhi Police had denied any misconduct, claiming that the activity captured on camera was required for security and that it was illegal for any accused person to speak to the media.

Additionally, the police had filed a request with the court asking for authorization to only produce Sisodia through video conference. According to their argument, it was imperative to produce him since doing so would have caused “chaos” as media representatives and AAP supporters gathered in the court’s halls.

Arvind Kejriwal became the first chief minister to be arrested while in office when the Enforcement Department (ED) detained him on Thursday night. Sisodia was brought into custody in February of last year in connection with the Delhi liquor policy case. After the AAP leader appeared in court on Rouse Avenue, the agency was given a seven-day custody order.

Kejriwal had been under jail for ten days, and the financial crime fighting agency, which is looking into the money laundering aspect of the case, had stated that it required to question him alongside the other accused.

The ED asserted that the AAP and the Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal had accepted bribes in return for favours, and that he served as the “kingpin” and an important conspirator in the purported scheme.

The ED claims that ₹ 600 crore was made total from the crime. It has been asserted that the Delhi liquor policy gave merchants a nearly 185% profit margin and wholesalers a profit margin of 12%. Six of the 12% were supposed to be recovered from wholesalers as kickbacks for AAP representatives, while another accused in the case, Vijay Nair, who was associated with the ruling party in Delhi, was allegedly given ₹ 100 crore in advance by a lobby known as the South Group.
