The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Tuesday alleged that Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has been placed under house arrest by Delhi police, a day after he visited the protesting farmers at Delhi’s Singhu border.

AAP claimed that the Bharatiya Janata Party-controlled Delhi police have barricaded Kejriwal’s house and all movement has been restricted.

The AAP’s official Twitter handle posted the news on Tuesday:

“Important: BJP’s Delhi Police has put Hon’ble CM Shri @ArvindKejriwal under house arrest ever since he visited farmers at Singhu Border yesterday. No one has been permitted to leave or enter his residence.”

Delhi Health Minister Satyendar Jain also tweeted: “CM @ArvindKejriwal met farmers at Singhu border y’day. He had said that we’ll serve them like ‘Sevadars’ & support them. After he returned, Delhi Police barricaded his residence from all sides, putting him in a house-arrest. No one is allowed to go outside or inside CM house.”

As allegations and counter-allegations floated on Twitter, the official handle of Deputy Commissioner of Police (North Delhi) jumped in to rubbish the claims made by the AAP.

Tweeting a picture of outside Kejriwal’s residence, it said: “This claim of CM Delhi being put on house arrest is incorrect. He exercises his right to free movement within the law of the land. A picture of the house entrance says it all.”

The AAP chief on Monday visited the Singhu border between Delhi and Haryana to meet thousands of protesting farmers who have been parked there in protest against the Centre’s new farm laws.
