As per news report of NDTV, Mr Khan was yesterday arrested by the Delhi police on charges of "rioting and obstructing public servants from discharging their duty" after he intervened in an anti-encroachment drive in southeast Delhi where the BJP-governed civic body demolished several structures they deemed illegal. Notably, there has been no public comment from AAP or party chief Arvind Kejriwal even a day after the arrest triggering backlash against the party from Mr Khan's supporters.
