In the wake of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's threat to stage a sit-in in front of Home Ministry, Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde today said he would look into his demands.

"I have asked my officers to examine their demands. Let us see. They are new in governance," he told reporters here after a meeting with Kejriwal.

The Delhi Chief Minister, accompanied by his cabinet colleagues Manish Sisodia, Somnath Bharti and Rakhi Birla, met the Home Minister and demanded suspension of the policemen who he said were allegedly negligent in the discharge of their duties as found by his ministers.

Kejriwal reportedly gave a deadline till Monday to the Home Minister saying if their demands are not met, the Delhi Ministers will stage dharna in front of the Home Ministry.

Bharti and Birla have accused three police officials of non-cooperation in two separate cases.

Bharti has charged that Malviya Nagar police did not cooperate with him in conducting a raid on Nigerian nationals whom he alleged were involved in a drugs and sex racket at Khirki village while Birla has accused Sagarpur police of shielding the members of a family who allegedly burnt their daughter-in-law over dowry demand.

"We have time till Monday. I gave them a patient hearing," Shinde said.
