New Delhi: The Delhi Police has filed an FIR against Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal for violating Section 144 during his two-day-long protest outside Rail Bhawan. Kejriwal who spearheaded the dharna against Delhi Police has been charged for violating Section 144, violence and inciting mob. Earlier, an FIR was filed against Aam Aadmi Party supporters for holding the two-day dharna despite prohibitory orders being put in place. However, Kejriwal was not named in that FIR. The police had then said that they would need to seek the Speaker's permission to name the CM. The FIR has reportedly been filed in the Parliament street police station. Kejriwal and his supporters held a two-day dharna demanding the suspension of the police officials who refused to follow Law Minister Somnath Bharti's orders to raid a house in Khirki Extension. Raisina Road, near Parliament, had become a battleground for two days, as AAP supporters clashed with the Delhi Police leaving several people injured.
