The live bullet found in possession of Muslim cleric who went to meet Kejriwal was ‘donated’ to a mosque

Last week, a man had attacked Kejriwal with chilli powder just outside his office in the Delhi secretariat.

A man was arrested after a live bullet was recovered from his possession during a security check-up when he went to visit Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal yesterday for the Janta-Darbar. The man identified as Imran has been booked under Arms Act.

The man was reportedly one of the clerics who had gone to visit the CM with a request to increase the salary of clerics of the Waqf Board staff.

Imran told the police that he had found the bullet in the donation box of a mosque, kept it in his wallet and forgot about it. “He has claimed he found the bullet in a donation box two-three months ago and he intended to throw it in the Yamuna, but since he was yet to do it, he had kept it in his purse,” Singh said.

According to additional deputy commissioner of police (north), Harendra Singh, the .32 bore live cartridge was recovered from his purse during the search and frisking by the security staff at the CM’s residence. The officer also said that Imran is a resident of Loni in Ghaziabad and works as the caretaker (Muezzin) of the Masjid Bawli Wali in Karol Bagh.

Only last Thursday a man identified as Anil Kumar Sharma was arrested for throwing chilli powder at Kejriwal as he was leaving his offices at the Delhi Secretariat. The Aam Admi Party had compared the incident with Mahatma Gandhi’s assassination and had called a special session of the Assembly to discuss the ‘chilli powder attack’.
