A unusual incident in New Delhi has put out serious questions regarding the safety and security of life and property in the National capital.
Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's much-publicised blue colour WagonR auto has been stolen from Delhi's Central Secretariat premises on Thursday, October 12. Kejriwal, who has been fighting to get control of the police forces in Delhi, questioned the police about where its attention was these days.
The auto was seen as proof of Kejriwal's "aam aadmi" credentials with the Delhi chief minister refusing to use a government vehicle even after assuming office. "It went missing around 1 am", a senior police official said. The police while speaking to the media said that the case is being investigated.
He stopped using the auto in 2014. It was used by Mr Kejriwal during his campaign for the first election he contested; it remained his vehicle of choice when he was first made Chief Minister.
Recently, the AAP chief was in news for opposing the proposed Delhi Metro fare hike. The Maruti auto was now being used by the Aam Aadmi Party's media coordinator Vandana Singh.
The October Metro fare hike comes as the second metro fare hike this year. As per the new fare hike commuters will now have to have to pay Rs 5-10 for every extra kilometres traveled.
