Congress MLA Sukhpal Singh Khaira on Wednesday alleged that AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal had been given Z+ security by the Punjab government, but a state police spokesperson said a document cited by the legislator is not official.
Mr Khaira questioned why the state government was extending the security cover to the Delhi Chief Minister, who already has Z+ security from the centre. He cited a list of protected persons to support his claim. He demanded that Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann withdraw the security provided to the AAP national convener.
A Punjab Police spokesperson, however, asserted that the document circulated in a section of the media was not an official one. The spokesperson is a part of a writ petition filed by former deputy chief minister OP Soni in the Punjab and Haryana High court. These attached documents are in no way official documents of Punjab Police, said the spokesperson.
The spokesperson said a perusal of the alleged list clearly showed that it is a typed document and there are no signatures, initials, official stamps or official authentication anywhere in the document.
It appears that this list has been typed by the petitioner and attached to the writ petition, said the spokesperson.
