Exclude Delhi Police from Rs 1 cr compensation policy: AAP MLAs
cancel

New Delhi: Angry over the chilli powder attack on Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, several Aam Aadmi Party (AP) MLAs on Wednesday wrote to the AAP chief to exclude Delhi Police from the Rs 1 crore compensation policy for the martyrs.

In July, the Delhi Cabinet had re-approved its scheme of giving Rs 1 crore compensation to the kin of Delhi-based security personnel from all the three services of Indian Armed Force, Delhi Police, paramilitary forces, Fire Service, Home Guards and district disaster force killed on duty.

In a letter, the MLAs wrote to Kejriwal that the "compensation should be given to all other forces, including military and paramilitary forces, and Delhi Police should be excluded from the list".

Kejriwal was on Tuesday afternoon attacked by a middle-aged man with chilli powder when he stepped out of his office after a meeting inside the Delhi Secretariat.

Recalling the various attacks on the party ministers and MLAs, the legislators said that after the repeated incidents, there is "a question mark on the intention of the Delhi Police".

"Instead of filing a case against those who attacked the party ministers and MLAs, the police is filing cases against our leaders," read the letter.

They said that "the police is following the order of a particular political party and is biased".
