Written by | January 19, 2014 | 0

New Delhi:  Hours after reports emerged that terror outfit Indian Mujahideen (IM) was planning to abduct Arvind Kejriwal, the Delhi chief minister refused to accept any form of security cover and said the Delhi Police were playing politics along with the central government.

“Is delhi police n central govt playing politics with my security? (sic)” Kejriwal tweeted. “Police officials met me in afternoon. Informed me abt threat. Asked me not to disclose it to media. Den dey themselves went and told media,” he sent out another tweet minutes later.

Earlier on Sunday, the Delhi Police said they had received inputs that the IM was planning to abduct Kejriwal for the release of its founding member Yaseen Bhatkal, who was arrested from the Indo-Nepal border on August 27 last year.

Kejriwal, who has remained silent on Twitter for quite some time and has only been promoting tweets by others, evidently chose the microblogging platform to attack the police and the Centre by instantly broadcasting his message to more than one million followers.
