MM Khan murder: Maheish Girri goes on hunger strike, Kejriwal demands arrest
NEW DELHI: Arvind Kejriwal this morning demanded that Maheish Girri, the BJP MP, who has been sitting on a hunger strike in protest outside the Delhi Chief Minister’s residence, demanding that the former prove his allegations regarding the murder of New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC) official MM Khan should be arrested by the ‘Modi Police’.
“He shud be arrested n interrogated by Modi police in MM Khan murder case. Modi police shielding him (sic),” Kejriwal said in a tweet.
The BJP lawmaker from East Delhi sat on a hunger strike yesterday evening outside the residence of Kejriwal and said that the Delhi Chief Minister has levelled baseless allegations regarding his involvement in the murder case.
“The hunger strike is going to continue. The Delhi Chief Minister has levelled baseless allegations of my involvement in NDMC official MM Khan's murder,” he told ANI.
“I will not even move from here till he comes out and I get justice,” he added.
In a letter to Lieutenant Governor Najeeb Jung, Kejriwal had accused him of trying to "save" Girri and NDMC vice-chairman Karan Singh Tanwar in Khan's murder.
Girri had asked Kejriwal for a public debate over his allegations.
Khan was shot dead in Jamia Nagar on May 16, a day before he was scheduled to pass the final order on the lease terms of a hotel which was functioning on a property leased out by the civic body.
