Man carrying live bullet arrested at CM Kejriwal's residence
NEW DELHI: The Delhi Police arrested a man after a live bullet was found on him during a security check at Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal residence.
The man, identified as Mohammad Imran, who is a mosque caretaker, went to attend a Janta Darbar (public meeting) with a request to increase the salary paid by Waqf board, the police said.
The 39-year-old man has been charged under the stringent Arms Act, they added.
During interrogation, Imran said he was a maujjin (caretaker) at Masjid Bawli Wali in Karol Bagh and found the cartridge in the mosque's donation box, months ago.
He said he had planned to throw it in the Yamuna river but kept it in his wallet instead, the officer said. Further investigation is underway, police said.
The incident comes days after Kejriwal was attacked with chilli powder inside the Delhi Secretariat.
The Aam Aadmi Party described the attack as "politically motivated."
