Delhi CM Kejriwal says If Shaheen Bagh shooter is AAP member, give him double punishment

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has said that if the Kapil Gujjar, the gunman who opened fire at Shaheen Bagh, is found to have links with AAP, he should get twice the punishment.

Speaking at a media address on Wednesday, Arvind Kejriwal said, "If punishment for such crimes is 10 years' jail then give the Shaheen Bagh shooter 20 years if he is an AAP member."

Kejriwal once again denied the claims made by Delhi Police that the shooter who opened fire at the Shaheen Bagh anti-CAA protest site, is an Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) member.

Delhi Police on Tuesday said that they have found photos of Kapil Gujjar with AAP leaders such as Sanjay Singh. Soon, BJP charged an attack at Kejriwal.

Kejriwal also challenged Home Minister Amit Shah for a debate on any issue on Delhi elections.

He said, "I challenge Amit Shah for a debate on any issue, Delhiites want to know why they should vote for BJP."

Earlier, while speaking to ANI, Kejriwal said the alleged links of the Shaheen Bagh shooter with AAP is a conspiracy devised by the BJP and some of "Amit Shah's cheap tricks" just hours before the elections.
