New Delhi: Sacked Delhi minister Kapil Mishra on Wednesday began an indefinite hunger strike at his home here and threatened not to eat anything till Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal "reveals" who funded foreign trips of five AAP leaders in the last two years.

In an open letter to Kejriwal, Mishra, suspended from the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) after he alleged corruption by the Chief Minister, said he was on a "satyagraha" at his home.

Mishra also alleged that he was getting "life threats from international numbers,"

"I got the call from an international number, but I didn't respond to that, then I received a death threat on a Whatsapp message," he said.

Mishra said he was fasting "all alone in one corner of my house" and would not end his protest till Kejriwal made public the details of foreign trips of the Chief Minister's "five friends -- Sanjay Singh, Ashish Khetan, Satyendar Jain, Raghav Chadhha and Durgesh Pathak".

He said he "won't eat anything, will only drink water".

Mishra said he knew Kejriwal was not bothered about his life and would persist with his protest till it was known "where they all visited, why they went, what did they do (during foreign trips) and from whose money did they do all these things".

"Many people have said the amount of the hawala money, discrepancies in donations, cash transactions would be revealed in minutes if these information are made public."

Mishra on Tuesday filed a graft complaint with the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) against Kejriwal, his relatives and other AAP leaders. Mishra was earlier removed as Delhi's Water Minister on Saturday.
