Kejriwal compliments Delhi cops for uncovering oil leaks

Delhi's anti-graft chief minister Arvind Kejriwal today complimented the Delhi Police for unearthing the corporate espionage racket – the latest blot on India's escutcheon – but added that the police should now target the ''top people'' benefitting from the leak.

''Compliments Delhi Police for busting espionage racket. During interrogation, police should try to reach top people, who would benefit from leaked info,'' Kejriwal tweeted.

The AAP on Friday demanded the setting up of a commission to probe the matter in a time-bound manner.

The party has often been at loggerheads with the Delhi Police. In his earlier stint as a chief minister, Kejriwal had staged a dharna outside Rail Bhavan demanding action against police officials in three different cases, of which one was related to a rape of a foreign national.

It has been a long-standing demand of Kejriwal's Aam Admi Party that the Delhi police should be brought under state control as in other states – Delhi NCR is unique in that the police is controlled by the central rather than the state government.
