Delhi Police has found CCTV footage, purportedly showing the stolen blue WagonR — used by Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal extensively during the 2015 Assembly polls campaign — crossing DND toll plaza around 2 pm on Friday.
Investigators have started scanning the dossier of auto-lifters, after they found CCTV footage from near the Delhi Secretariat, wherein the accused is reportedly visible. The car was stolen from outside the Secretariat on Thursday. DCP (central) M S Randhawa said, “We have found some crucial details after scanning the CCTV footage. Our teams are working on it.”
Sources said after visiting the spot, the anti-auto-theft squad (AATS) of central district started scanning the CCTV footage from the area where the incident took place as well as nearby areas. “They got crucial leads after they found a footage that shows a man, wearing a T-shirt and aged around 40 years, sitting inside the car. He later started the car and left the spot. Later, police found another footage from Indraprastha Park Metro station that showed the car crossing the Metro station,” sources added.
Investigators then tried to establish the route, and after scanning CCTV footage from several places across the city, found the car crossing DND toll. Police are now trying to establish where the car could have gone after crossing the toll plaza.
“There is a possibility that the accused came to Delhi from UP to attend a court hearing, and stole the car on his way back,” police sources said. Several teams of Delhi police are conducting raids in Meerut to get clues.
Meanwhile, Kejriwal wrote to L-G Anil Baijal Friday saying the theft points to the deteriorating law-and-order situation. “What can common men expect in a state where the CM’s car goes missing? Delhi’s law and order has been deteriorating.”
