Sacked AAP minister Kapil Mishra goes to CBI with 'proof' against Kejriwal

Taking his threats to expose Arvind Kejriwal a step further, sacked Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) minister Kapil Mishra - who was suspended yesterday - went to the CBI today, carrying yellow envelopes that he said were his proof.

Those envelopes, he said, had his statements, not clarifying whether that was all he had to show for his allegation that Mr Kejriwal had taken bribe. This morning, he dramatically called Kejriwal his mentor and sought his blessings and "forgiveness" before "the biggest step of my life".

Kejriwal tweeted last evening that "truth will prevail" and a special one-day sitting of the Delhi assembly today would mark the beginning.

The Delhi Chief Minister posted today about a reveal in the assembly about a "big national conspiracy". Sources indicate the reveal will centre around tampering of Electronic Voting Machines or EVMs.

Kapil Mishra is filing an FIR or First Information Report with the CBI, alleging that he saw Kejriwal take Rs. 2 crore from another minister, Satyendar Jain, at his home last Friday.

Mishra was suspended by the party yesterday, shortly after he dared his leadership to expel him. Today, he challenged Kejriwal to fight him in an election.

He has said that he will file two more FIRs - one on "how Mr Jain has benefited close relatives of Kejriwal in illegal land deals", and another on foreign tours using "illegal money" by AAP leaders including Jain, Ashish Khetan and Sanjay Singh.

AAP strongly criticised the former minister for naming Kejriwal's relative, who died on Monday morning. "Have some humanity. Not even two hours after the cremation, allegations are being made against the person," said Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia.
