How it all started ?
Arvind Kejriwal is accusing the Delhi police for not co-operating with the Delhi government’s Law minister Somnath Bharti who had allegedly conducted a “raid” by himself in South Delhi during the weekend to nab the allegedly Ugandan and Nigerian nationals involved in prostitution and drug trafficking. Bharti had ordered the police to physically check the women, arrest them and raid the houses. The police had refused to do so citing that they did not have the lady police personnel as required by the protocol, and did not possess the warrant to carry on the raid and the arrest.
