NEW DELHI: Unidentified persons allegedly barged into the house of Manish Sisodia's media advisor and "stole important documents" containing details of the meetings between the Deputy Chief Minister and Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal over the last one year.

Sisodia has written to Police Commissioner Alok Verma alleging "foul play" as "valuable items" including laptop, mobile, music system were not stolen, but certain "important papers" of the briefings were missing from the South Delhi residence of his media advisor Arunodaya Prakash.

Referring to CBI's raid at Kejriwal's former principal secretary Rajendra Kumar's office last December, Sisodia alleged "when they did not find anything in the raid, they are now getting items stolen from the houses".

Based on the complaint, an FIR under sections 457 (lurking house-trespass or house-breaking by night in order to commit offence punishable with imprisonment) and 380 of IPC (theft in dwelling house) has been registered at Malviya Nagar police station against unknown persons.

Additional DCP (South) Nupur Prasad said, "An FIR has been registered and the case is being investigated." The alleged incident took place on the intervening night of July 17 and 18 when Prakash was not at his home as he was busy with the preparations for TalktoAK programme of Kejriwal at the Delhi Secretariat.

"This is a very serious issue as brief notes of the media advisor to CM and Deputy CM were stolen from his house. No valuable items were missing from the house which indicates foul play. It is a deliberate attempt. Prepared notes of the meetings of CM and Deputy CM over last one year have been stolen," Sisodia told reporters here.

He said he has written to Police Commissioner and asked him to investigate the case from all angles. Prakash said when he reached his house in the morning of July 18 it was found ransacked.

"All valuable items including laptop, mobile, music system were in place. However, my important notes from the meeting of CM, Deputy CM and others were found missing. A forensic team inspected the house and picked up some finger prints from scene," he said.
