DDCA official sought sex for selection: Kejriwal

New Delhi, Dec 29 : Escalating his attack on the Delhi and District Cricket Association (DDCA), Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal accused one of its officials of seeking sex for selecting cricketers and said he had no qualms about calling Prime Minister Narendra Modi a “coward” and a “psychopath”.

Kejriwal said Modi, at whose order the CBI raided his office on December 15, was ready to befriend hostile Pakistan, but won’t let the Delhi chief minister work.

In an interview to NDTV, Kejriwal, whose government has set up a Commission of Inquiry into the alleged irregularities in the DDCA, said sexual favours were being sought for selecting players.

“You will be surprised to know that a senior journalist phoned me and said that his son, who plays cricket, was selected,” Kejriwal told NDTV.

“But his son’s name was not there in the list. And can you believe it… the next day his wife gets an SMS that said ‘come to my house and your son’s name will be there (in the list),” he said.

Kejriwal said the journalist was willing to depose once the Commission of Inquiry starts working.

Kejriwal, who said there were more sordid tales in the DDCA which was headed by now union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley for many years.

On December 15, the Central Bureau of Investigation raided the third floor of the Delhi Secretariat — also housing the chief minister’s office — in connection with corruption charges against Kejriwal’s Principal Secretary Rajendra Kumar.

However, Kejriwal alleged that the investigation agency, which reports to the central government, raided his office too and read the files related to DDCA to save Jaitley.

An incensed Kejriwal had called Modi a psychopath and coward after failing to handle the chief minister politically.

“I don’t regret anything. I accept I use bad language, I speak from the heart,” he said.

Referring to the impromptu stopover of Modi in Pakistan on his counterpart Nawaz Sharif’s birthday, Kejriwal said: “I appeal to you (Modi)… we don’t want any fight. You can befriend Pakistan, yet you won’t let Arvind Kejriwal work.”

He said Modi should decide “whether to make the DDCA inquiry null and void to protect Jaitley”.

The AAP leader has said massive bungling happened under Jaitley’s nose and he should resign and face the probe.

Refuting the allegations, Jaitley filed a defamation suit against Kejriwal and other Aam Aadmi Party leaders.

“Mr. Jaitley was repeatedly told many times about the corruption. He was president for 14 years and a scam took place on such a large scale. The moment we said there is corruption in the DDCA, Mr. Jaitley filed a defamation suit against us.”

New Delhi, July 14: Four years back, a young man changed his sex. Three years on, she fell in love with a man. Both decided to marry. However, in a year tragedy struck and husband Gyanendra Shukla slit his wife’s throat and left her to die.

The brutal attack took place in South Delhi’s Amar Colony. Shukla expected his wife not to survive when he fled leaving her in a pool of blood.

The woman, not only survived but gathered enough strength to made a video call to her father and tell him about the gruesome attack that took place on July 11.

“The father made a PCR call from Gurugram, while the profusely bleeding wife dragged herself to the door and started knocking with a hammer to raise an alarm and get someone’s help because her vocal chords were slashed,” said DCP South East Delhi R.P. Meena. Her neighbours shifted her to the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS).

Shukla was arrested the same day. He hails from Uttar Pradesh’s Mahoba district.

His interrogation revealed that he got married on March 13, 2019. His family members were against the marriage. Soon after marriage the relationship turned sour as he could not accept the outgoing nature of his wife.

He lost confidence in the relationship and started suspecting his wife at every turn. He checked her messages and did not approve of her partying.

The couple initially stayed with the wife’s family but the father-in-law asked them to leave as the woman’s family could not take the daily dose of quarrel. The couple shifted to Lajpat Nagar-IV area and moved into a rented accommodation. Their disputes were endless and converted into routine quarrels.

Soon the couple started staying separately. The husband shifted to Kotla Mubarakpur while the wife remained in the double storey building in Amar Colony.

On Saturday, he decided to kill her and end it once and for all. Shukla has been booked for attempt to murder.
