BJP MP Maheish Girri on Thursday wrote to the Delhi Police chief Alok Kumar, demanding Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal be asked to join the probe in the murder of NDMC official MM Khan.

In his letter, Girri wrote, Kejriwal and the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) accused him of being involved in Khan’s murder despite having been given a clean chit by the police.

“The Delhi CM… has been making accusations against me that they have a copy of a letter written by me. Hence I request you to call Kejriwal for questioning, so that the evidence can be made available to Delhi Police and guilty can be arrested in the case…,” the letter, written in Hindi, states.

The police on Thursday gave a clean chit to east Delhi MP Girri and NDMC’s vice-chairman Karan Singh Tanwar in the case, saying no evidence was found against them.

The AAP on Thursday demanded the role of lieutenant governor Najeeb Jung, Karan Singh Tanwar and Girri be probed. The party also pointed out that the L-G’s letter asking the NDMC to take action on the matter as per law was sent on May 17, a day after Khan’s death.

“...Even as Khan was murdered on May 16, and the police had arrested the accused hotelier Ramesh Kakkar, the L-G deemed it fit to write another to the NDMC on behalf of a murder accused and his MP friend Maheish Girri,” AAP spokesperson Raghav Chadha had said.

Khan, a legal adviser with NDMC, was shot dead in Jamia Nagar on May 16 by two motorcycle-borne assailants.

Khan was killed a day before he was slated to pass orders on the terms of a hotel’s operation, sealed on the ground that licence fees to the tune of `140 crore had not been paid to NDMC.
