Delhi Police chief tried to protect arms dealer Abhishek Verma, alleges AAP

New Delhi: Arvind Kejriwal-led Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Monday released documents against Delhi Police Commissioner Neeraj Kumar that try to establish connection between arms dealer Abhishek Verma and the DCP, who is already facing flak over rape of a 5-year-old in Delhi.

As a joint director of the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) Neeraj Kumar had tried to protect Verma, the AAP alleged. The party also said that Verma claims to be close to Kumar. However, Kumar has denied the allegations made by the AAP. "These are sponsored allegations made by the accused (Verma) whom I arrested during my tenure in the CBI," Kumar told CNN-IBN.

In a press conference, the party's national convenor Arvind Kejriwal also demanded resignation of Kumar over the rape of the minor girl, which has sparked outrage in the national capital and protests across the city.
