A blue WagonR donated by a UK-based AAP supporter, which Delhi Chief Minister used extensively during the 2015 Assembly polls campaign, was allegedly stolen from outside the Delhi secretariat Thursday afternoon. An e-FIR of motor vehicle theft has been registered.
During preliminary probe, police found footage from a CCTV camera installed inside the secretariat, which purportedly shows the car being lifted at 1.10 pm, police said, adding that hunt is on to nab the accused. The blue hatchback, which became synonymous with Kejriwal’s ‘aam aadmi’ image, was being used by AAP functionary Vandana Singh.
DCP (Central) MS Randhawa said, “The incident came to light at around 3.51 pm after the complainant, Vandana Singh, working with the media cell of Aam Aadmi Party alerted police. Efforts are on to identify the accused.”
Police said that after Singh found out that the car, DL-9CG-9769, was missing, she checked with the traffic police, assuming it was lifted by them. “I reached the secretariat at 11.15 am and parked the car near the underpass. I later came to know that the car was stolen,” Singh claimed.
Though Kejriwal refrained from speaking on the issue, he retweeted a remark questioning the Delhi Police’s alertness. “So much for Delhi police – dhyan kidhar hai !!,” asked the user with the handle ‘jalajboy’..
