BJP Maheish Girri has ended his 3-day hunger strike outside Arvind Kejriwal house after being persuaded by Senior BJP leader and home minister, Rajnath Singh, who had come to meet him.
Girri had been on hunger strike outside Kejriwal’s residence since Sunday after the Delhi Chief Minister declined to join in an open debate over his accusation that the BJP leader was involved in murder of a New Delhi Municipal Council officer.
While calling off his strike, Girri denied any involvement in MM Khan’s murder and also reiterated that Kejriwal should come out with proof to back his allegation against him or offer an apology.
On June 15, Arvind Kejriwal, in a letter written to Lt Governor Najeeb Jung, had alleged that Maheish Girri and New Delhi Municipal Council vice chairman Karan Singh Tanwar name’s had come up in the murder probe of NDMC employee MM Khan.
New Delhi Municipal Council’s estate officer MM Khan was shot dead in Jamia Nagar here on 16 May – a day before he was expected to pass an order on the terms of the lease of The Connaught, a four-star hotel.
