Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) spokesperson Dilip Pandey’s meeting with Delhi police commissioner Alok Kumar Verma to demand the arrest and custodial interrogation of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Karan Singh Tanwar in connection with murder of NDMC official M M Khan has been postponed until further notice .
Pandey along with other party legislators was scheduled to meet Verma at around 12 pm on Monday.
Mohammed Moin Khan, a lawyer and an assistant legal advisor with NDMC, was shot dead last week.
The AAP has alleged that NDMC vice-chairman Karan Singh Tanwar had threatened the 57-year-old lawyer with dire consequences a few days before his murder.
Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal and union home minister Rajnath Singh had announced compensation of Rs one crore and Rs 25 lakh respectively to Khan’s family.
NDMC has also offered a job to one of the family members of Khan and allotted a three-tier house to them.
Police have questioned Khan’s colleagues who claimed he was an honest officer and forthright in his dealings. The investigators, however, came to know that Khan was once suspended by NDMC on charges of misconduct 11 years ago.
