After Girri, AAP blames Jung for Khan
AAP minister Ashish Khetan said in his tweets that Delhi's LG was the 'fulcrum' of the conspiracy to kill MM Khan. These tweets were retweeted by CM Kejriwal. Union minister of state for home Kiren Rijiju slammed Aam Aadmi Party for alleging Delhi LG Najeeb Jung's hand in the murder. Rijiju said the AAP was making "frivolous accusations" and "jumping the gun.
NDMC's legal adviser M M Khan was shot dead by 2 men. The police arrested the owner of the four-star hotel, Ramesh Kakkar, along with six others on 19 May. Khan had refused to take bribes and pass orders in favor of Kakkar who hadn't paid dues of more than Rs.140 crore to the New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC) in licensing fees.
It was revealed that Kakkar had offered Khan Rs.3 crores as bribe and he was murdered one day prior to passing the order on the hotel on NDMC's leased property.
CM Kejriwal commanded that BJP MP from East Delhi Mahesh Giri be probed in connection with the murder of NDMC official M M Khan. He even accused the Modi of "shielding" him. According to Kejriwal, Mahesh Girri had forwarded the letter written by Ramesh Kakkar to the Lt. Governor asking for the dismissal of New Delhi Municipal Council legal adviser M.M. Khan.
In response to Kejriwal's allegations, Maheish Girri challenged the AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal to have an open discussion with him. Girri said that either Kejriwal should prove his allegations or quit. Girri's call came after the Delhi Police admonished Delhi CM's charges against Delhi LG Najeeb Jung of shielding two BJP leaders in the murder case of MM Khan.
BJP MP Maheish Girri went on a strike outside Arvind Kejriwal's house in north Delhi. He has been protesting against Kejriwal's allegations that Girri was involved in the murder of an NDMC official last month. Kejriwal said that Girri was resorting to drama and said there were 'killers outside my home' and they should be arrested by the Delhi Police.
The murdered official's daughter said "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."
Mahesh Girri ended his 3-day long fast against Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal outside the latter's residence. The BJP MP ended his fast-unto-death after Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh visited him and appealed that he do so. Rajnath assured Girri that he would get impartial probe. Upon breaking his fast, Girri once again challenged Kejriwal for an open challenge to debate upon MM Khan's murder.
