Indian Mujahideen planning to kidnap Kejriwal: Police

Indian Mujahideen planning to kidnap KejriwalNew Delhi, January 19, 2014: Terror outfit Indian Mujahideen is planning to abduct Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal to demand the release of its co-founder Yaseen Bhatkal, police said Sunday.

“According to information from an intelligence agency, Kejriwal can be kidnapped by IM members, who are planning it in order to get co-founder Yaseen Bhatkal released,” a police officer said.

Bhatkal is currently in custody of Karnataka Police in connection with the 2010 Chinnaswamy Stadium blasts. He was arrested by the National Investigation Agency in August 2013.

Bhatkal is accused of being involved in many terror attacks across the country.

Police said a senior officer met Kejriwal Sunday to inform him about the threat and persuade him to accept high-grade security cover.

However, Aam Aadmi Party leader Sanjay Singh told media persons that Kejriwal did not accept the police proposal.

All top party leaders will maintain their stand that they will not accept security cover, he said.

Kejriwal has been refusing to accept security cover in keeping with his party’s policy to “end VIP culture in politics”.

Last week, intelligence officials had warned that Kejriwal could be targeted by the water and tender mafia, which were feeling threatened because of his anti-corruption policies.

Hindu activists protest outside Kejriwal homeUttar Pradesh, January 19, 2014: Around 100 activists of the Hindu Raksha Dal staged a protest outside Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s house here demanding withdrawal of police cases against them.

A member of the Hindu group said its members had been arrested over the Jan 8 attack on the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) office here because of a police complaint filed by the AAP.

The protesters demanded the immediate withdrawal of the case.

“Certain charges levelled against us are false,” a spokesman for the group said.

The activists gathered outside Kejriwal’s residence around 9 a.m. and said they wanted to meet him. But security personnel did not let them in.

Meanwhile, Kejriwal, who came out of the apartment complex in his car to go to Delhi, was intercepted by the demonstrators shouting slogans against the AAP. Police used force to let Kejriwal proceed.
