As Delhi High Court rapped Aam Aadmi Party’s government for sitting over the JNU sedition case files, CM Arvind Kejriwal has alleged that the roles of Delhi Police is ‘suspicious’ as they took over 3 years to file the chargesheet
Yesterday, the Delhi High Court made it clear that the Delhi government cannot sit over the file indefinitely and the case needs to be heard as early as possible. The court held that “Ask the authorities concerned to expedite the matter. They can’t sit on file for an indefinite period.”
Today, Delhi CM was questioned about the case and he clearly said that the role of Delhi Police is suspicious and their stance seems to be on the side of political vendetta.
