AAP’s ex-minister, Asim Khan says Arvind Kejriwal wants to kill my family


New Delhi: , The former Delhi Food and Civil Supplies and Environment Minister, today claimed that his family was being targeted by , days after he alleged that he was receiving “death threats” from Chief Minister  and some of his party men.

Khan said he has been facing threats after he raised the issue of sacrilege of Koran in Malerkotla in Punjab. The Punjab Police had on 24 July arrested AAP’s Mehrauli MLA Naresh Yadav in connection with this case.

The Aam Aadmi Party, however, rejected the allegations.

“Yesterday (On Tuesday), three women entered our shop and started misbehaving with my father. They wanted to register a false case against my father, but we called the police following which they left,” the Matia Mahal MLA claimed.”On the same day, I brought this to the notice of the Jama Masjid Police Station.

He also demanded scanning of phone records of the three women, who he claimed had criminal record.

Khan was sacked by Kejriwal last October for allegedly taking a bribe of Rs six lakh for allowing construction of a building in his constituency.

Khan said he will soon “spill the beans” about AAP.

He also claimed that two days back some miscreants tried to snatch his guard’s gun outside his residence at 3.40 AM.

“Two such incidents after I said there is a threat to my family’s life say a lot,” he added.

“This issue is very sensitive to us. We are demanding a probe into the matter by the party. What action is the party taking against its MLAs? At least probe the charges. Instead I and my family are facing threats,” Khan said.

“What I have been indicated is that the top AAP leadership, including Kejriwal ji, is behind the conspiracy to slap a false case against my father,” he alleged, adding, “Target me. Why are you targeting my father? Your fight is with me.”
