NEW DELHI: Aam Aadmi Party has alleged a theft at its Delhi headquarter at 206 Rouse Avenue on 4 November. The theft was captured on CCTV camera.
In a police complaint, AAP said that the thieves had stolen more than two dozens of canopies, ‘which were pre-printed with party name and logo.’ The party also alleged that the thieves made an attempt to break open the iron grill fixed outside the premises.
The party also submitted a copy of CCTV footage before the officer-in-charge of IP Estate Police Station in Delhi.
The incident comes just weeks after Delhi chief minister, Arvind Kejriwal’s iconic WagonRcar was stolen from outside the state secretariat. The car was later found from Ghaziabad in Uttar Pradesh few days later.
The police in national capital reports to the central government via the office of the Lieutenant Governor. The elected government of Arvind Kejriwal has challenged the High Court’s ruling making the LG the administrative head of Delhi.
The matter is currently being heard by a constitutional bench of the Supreme Court.
Kejriwal had formed the government in Delhi in February 2015 after his party won a historic mandate by winning 67 out of 70 seats in the national capital.
