Delhi New Highlights: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday accused the BJP-led central government of using force and hooliganism in not allowing MCD elections in the city and said that AAP will approach the court to get the polls conducted on time. He also said that the party was delaying the elections because they were fearing defeat. Kejriwal was speaking in the Delhi Assembly on the second day of the monsoon session.

In another development, Zee TV news anchor, Rohit Ranjan, was detained by the UP police on Tuesday morning after the channel allegedly aired misleading clips about Congress leader Rahul Gandhi. Chhattisgarh Police officials arrived at Ranjan’s residence to arrest him in connection with an FIR that was registered against him earlier. “Chhattisgarh Police is standing outside my house to arrest me without informing the local police, is it legal,” the journalist tweeted this morning.

Meanwhile, Mohammed Zubair, co-founder of the fact-checking website AltNews, was on Monday produced in a court at Sitapur in Uttar Pradesh in a case registered over a tweet that allegedly referred to Yati Narsinghanand Saraswati and two other religious leaders as “hate mongers”. Payments provider Razorpay restored the link for donations Monday, saying it had disabled the account from its platform “temporarily, as a safety precaution, during the preliminary investigation by law enforcement authorities”.
