Mumbai chaos: Case registered against Kejriwal
The Airport Police in Mumbai registered a case against Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) chief Arvind Kejriwal and other party leaders on Thursday based on a complaint against them for creating chaos at the domestic airport here on Wednesday.
The police has booked the AAP leaders for defying orders of government officers and for violating prohibitory orders and violation of MV Act at Terminal 1/A.
The police are now investigating the case.
Chaos broke out at Churchgate railway station in Mumbai on Wednesday as the former Delhi Chief Minister reached there to board a local train.
TV footage showed AAP supporters damaging metal detectors at the station while daily passengers complained of harassment and inconvenience.
Though Kejriwal said he will travel like an 'aam aadmi' (common man) in a local train, it was a special train arranged for him with no other passenger on board.
Kejriwal on Wednesday visited Mumbai to address several public meetings and campaign for his party for the Lok Sabha elections.
Despite the Mumbai Police providing 'Z' category security to him, on his arrival, Kejriwal took an autorickshaw from the airport to Andheri station, where he boarded a local train to Churchgate.
According to reports, over 150 cops and three Assistant Commissioners of Police (ACPs) have been deployed in South Mumbai where Kejriwal is scheduled to hold two road shows.
