NEW DELHI: 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.
