On a day when Dehi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal is set to address a rally in Surat, Aam Aadmi Party MLA and Gujarat in-charge Gulab Singh has surrendered before Surat police in Umra, a media report said. He was later questioned by officials of the Delhi Police, who are in Gujarat, and subsequently arrested. Earlier, a non-bailable warrant had been issued against the Matiala legislator for failing to join an investigation in an extortion case involving his associates. Singh’s driver was arrested in the same case last month along with an associate. Kejriwal has accused BJP national president Amit Shah of “attempts to disrupt his rally” in Surat.
Reacting to the non-bailable warrant issued against him, Yadav told media persons before surrendering that he was in Gujarat since October 6, and the case was lodged on October 13. He called the case “baseless”.
Kejriwal during a media interaction in Vadodara, had said, “I have heard that Amit Shah has been making plans to disrupt the rally in Surat. This is not my rally, it is the people’s rally.” About the Yadav case he said it was “fabricated” and said that the BJP government was “scared” and therefore was making such moves.
