NEW DELHI: With Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP Maheish Girri protesting against Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal for leveling baseless allegations regarding his involvement in the murder of NDMC Officer MM Khan, the slain officer’s daughter Iqra Khan on Monday requested Girri to end his hunger strike as her family did not want the matter to be politicized.

“I would like to personally request him not to not hold hunger strike. We don't want this issue to be politicised. We are just seeking justice for my father. We are very simple people and we don’t understand politics and we don’t want to do politics,” Iqra told ANI here. 

She further said that the family only wants an unbiased probe to take place without any interference.

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,” Girri 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.
