"Gulab gets bail today. FIR agnst Imran quashed by Del HC yesterday. What purpose is srved? Centre harassing us bcoz Del govt doing gud work (sic)," Kejriwal tweeted after a court granted bail to AAP MLA and incharge of Gujarat affairs Gulab Singh Yadav, arrested in extortion case.
AAP leader Ashish Khetan said the Delhi High Court has also quashed an FIR against Delhi Minister Imran Hussain in an extortion case.
Khetan said of the 14 AAP MLAs arrested, only one case is such that there was a trial against legislator Akhilesh Pati Tripathi in which he was acquitted.
"The rest of the cases MLAs were given bail.
"During the emergency, there is a un-declared emergency in Delhi. For every small reason, an AAP MLA is arrested and this has become a motive of the Delhi Police. The Anti-Corruption Bureau, which reports to Ministry of Home Affairs. Now CBI is unleashed upon us. There is no parallel of harassment of any government like this," Khetan added.
