Union Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde Saturday said Delhi “enjoyed special position in matters of policing” and that Lieutenant-Governor Najeeb Jung was looking into “demands” made by Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.
Kejriwal had threatened to sit on a dharna outside North Block with his ministers if four police officers are not suspended by 10 am on Monday for “not doing their duty”.
Shinde said Kejriwal had approached him with some requests regarding policing.
“The Delhi L-G is looking into the matter. We are also looking into it. But Delhi enjoys special position in matters of policing,” he said.
Asked if the police officers would be suspended, he said: “I cannot say if they will be suspended or not”.

AAP ministers Rakhi Birla and Somnath Bharti had a showdown with Delhi Police officers in two separate incidents on Thursday night.
Bharti had reprimanded a senior police officer for not arresting some foreign nationals who he alleged were in a drug and sex racket. Birla, on the other hand, had taken exception to police not heeding her demand of searching a house in connection with a dowry harassment case. She alleged that police were shielding the accused in the case.
Meanwhile, former Karnataka Lokayukta Santosh Hegde criticised Bharti’s vigilante style raid and his calling a meeting of judges.
“Two things Bharti has done wrong — creating a scene… and convening a meeting of all judges of courts,” Hegde, a former Team Anna member, said.
