Delhi Police Visit Atishi’s Residence Following Allegations of ‘BJP Poaching’ Post Arvind Kejriwal’s Incident

Story Highlights
  • On Saturday, officers from the Delhi Police's crime branch issued a notice to Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.

On Sunday, officers from the Delhi Police’s crime branch visited Delhi Minister Atishi’s residence on Mathura Road. They were there to deliver a notice regarding the Aam Aadmi Party’s claims that the Bharatiya Janata Party tried to persuade seven AAP MLAs to switch sides. At the time of their visit, Atishi wasn’t home, according to initial reports.

A video released by news agency ANI captured the presence of the crime branch outside Atishi’s residence. This visit followed a similar one to Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s home the day before. Kejriwal was issued a notice after a five-hour event, requiring him to respond within three days regarding his accusations that the BJP attempted to persuade AAP MLAs.

AAP leader Jasmine Shah commented, “Yesterday, a team from the Delhi Police crime branch visited CM Arvind Kejriwal’s residence. They were there to serve a notice. They waited for five hours before delivering the notice to a member of the CM’s office… The notice doesn’t involve an FIR, summon, or preliminary inquiry. It’s just a letter on plain paper.”

A Delhi Police officer stated, “We have served the notice to him (Kejriwal). He has three days to respond in writing.”

Additionally, Kejriwal was asked by the crime branch to disclose the names of AAP MLAs allegedly approached by the BJP. Another scene unfolded at Kejriwal’s residence in Civil Lines as the crime branch revisited on Saturday to issue him another notice.

Kejriwal sympathized with the police officers tasked with delivering the notice, mentioning on social media that while it’s their duty to combat crime, they were being drawn into unnecessary drama. He questioned why such drama was necessary when the responsible party behind the government’s toppling knew the culprits.

Earlier, Kejriwal had claimed on social media that the BJP offered ₹25 crore each to seven AAP MLAs to defect. Atishi, in a subsequent press conference, accused the BJP of launching “Operation Lotus 2.0” in Delhi, citing a similar attempt from the previous year.
