NEW DELHI: The Delhi Police probing the graffiti incident targeting Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday said a man has been captured in CCTV cameras scribbling the messages.

The police on Monday registered an FIR and started a probe after graffiti bearing the AAP national convenor’s name was found scribbled inside metro trains and at stations.

“A young man is caught writing on the signboards and coaches in the CCTV footage. He is suspected to be the same man who had shared the photographs of the graffiti on his Instagram account,” an officer said. He said the police collected the footage from the Patel Nagar, Ramesh Nagar and Rajiv Chowk metro stations on Tuesday.

The police officer said pictures of certain messages scribbled inside metro trains and at stations were shared through the Instagram account “ankit.goel_91”. The officer said the person, Ankit Goel, whose Instagram account has been used for sharing the pictures of the graffiti, is being searched.

It is suspected Goel scribbled the graffiti and posted pictures of those on his account for fame but the actual reason will be known once he is interrogated, the officer added.
