Is Arvind Kejriwal’s life at risk?

A man who had gone to meet Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal as part of a delegation was arrested, after live bullets were found on him.

The man identified as Mohammad Imran was among dozens of clerics who had gone to Kejriwal’s home, with a request to increase salary paid by the Waqf Board.

The bullet was found in his wallet by a security guard who was frisking him. The Delhi Police arrested him under the Arms Act. He told the police that he found the bullets in the donation box of a mosque, and kept it in his wallet and forgot about them.

This is the second security incident involving Mr. Kejriwal after a chilli powder attack, last week.

The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) had been demanding control over the Delhi Police ever since it was elected to power. Currently, the Delhi Police reports to Union Home Minister.

Mr. Kejriwal is an old victim of such attacks.

List of attacks on Kejriwal –

  • Muslim cleric attempts to meet Kejriwal with live bullets in his pocket in November 2018.

    I suppose no other Neta would’ve ever faced so many attacks in their lifetime that Kejriwal has seen in his 6 years. All these attackers used cheap tricks to humiliate Mr. Kejriwal.

    I understand it would be very difficult for the Delhi Police to filter these weapons at security check.

    But looking at the long list of attacks the Delhi CM has been through, shouldn’t the Delhi Police stricten their methods?

    It’s a clear case of negligence and revenge from the part of Delhi Police, as the Chief Minister time and again abused the Delhi police.
