A senior police officer said the Aam Aadmi Party leader received two-three emails on January 9.

The sender threatened to kidnap Harshita, who works with an MNC in Gurugram.

"In the email, the unknown sender has claimed that they will harm the chief minister's daughter and have challenged him to do whatever he can do to protect her," the officer said.

Kejriwal's media advisor claims police hasn't taken action

A Personal Security Officer (PSO) has been deployed to Harshita, who will shadow her wherever she goes.

Kejriwal's media advisor Nagendra Sharma said the Delhi government forwarded the emails to Delhi Police commissioner Amulya Patnaik.

He claimed three days have passed but the police haven't got back to them.

However, a senior officer claimed Patnaik met with the top brass of the police.

"Kejriwal and his family members didn't seek security"

"Since the CM's official residence is in Civil Lines, the local police was asked to immediately approach Kejriwal's office and provide security to his daughter. Despite the threatening mails, Kejriwal or his family members did not ask for any security cover themselves," the officer said.
