The only woman minister in the Kejriwal government, Rakhi Birla, has refused Delhi Police security, saying she is safe among the people and even gave it in writing.

According to police sources, an official visited Birla’s house in Mangolpuri on Thursday with a letter of the Delhi Police to convince her to accept security. “We had written a letter to her requesting to accept the security offered to ministers but she refused,” the official said. Security should be given to the people and women on the roads and other places, she apparently said. 

The Women and Child Development Minister lodged a complaint at Mangolpuri police station on January 5 stating someone had thrown a stone at her windscreen while returning from a function. She withdrew her complaint when asked by CM Arvind Kejriwal after it was revealed that the windscreen had been hit by a cricket ball while some boys were playing in the area.
