After the day-long CBI raid in the offices of Delhi Secretariat ended on Tuesday, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal pointed out that the files seized from the offices have no connection to any of the allegations under probe.

Kejriwal is now pointing fingers at Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, who was the president of Delhi District Cricket Association (DDCA) for 13 years till December, 2013.

"It has become important for me to tell why the CBI raided the Chief Minister's office. The CBI had come to search for the DDCA files which have Arun Jaitley's name, as he was the former President of DDCA and probe is on in the case. I want to tell Modi ji. You may have scared others but I am not going to be scared of CBI, You don't know what I am made of," an NDTV report quoted Kejriwal.

Kejriwal tweeted, ""CBI kept reading DDCA file in my office. They wud hv seized it. But after my media briefing, they left it. Not clear if they took a copy."


Kejriwal also insisted that Jaitley was scared of the probe into the irregularities.

On 15 December, CBI raided the office of Principal Secretary Rajender Kumar in connection to an alleged corruption case wherein he used his position to award contracts to a particular firm.

Kejriwal then took potshots at Prime Minister Narendra Modi, alleging that he had asked the authorities to conduct the raid. Kejriwal called Modi a "coward and a psychopath" on Twitter.

BJP has demanded an apology for accusing the PMO.
