Delhi Police on Tuesday said they will look into the matter and do whatever needed in connection with the allegations made by former AAP MLA Rajesh Garg that calls with the "consent" of Arvind Kejriwal were made to him and several other leaders offering them crores to support BJP.

New Delhi: Delhi Police on Tuesday said they will look into the matter and do whatever needed in connection with the allegations made by former AAP MLA Rajesh Garg that calls with the "consent" of Arvind Kejriwal were made to him and several other leaders offering them crores to support BJP.

"We are collecting information on the matter. We will look into the matter and do whatever needed," Delhi Police Commissioner B S Bassi said today.

Garg, whom the party had recently suspended, today alleged that calls with the "consent" of Kejriwal were made to him and several other leaders offering them crores to support BJP.

Garg claimed that police had arrested a person on his complaint of receiving fake calls from Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley's office offering him Rs 10 crore, but later released on AAP's intervention.

"During the initial phase of government formation I got calls from someone who claimed to be calling from Arun Jaitley's office offering Rs 10 crore to support BJP.

"I took a screen shot of the number and lodged a police complaint which arrested a person. Then I got a call from Sanjay Singh asking me to withdraw the complaint. I didn't withdraw but they managed to get him released," he alleged.

Garg further claimed that all calls during that period were made with party chief Kejriwal's "consent from private and unknown numbers".

The former MLA from Rohini claimed that several other AAP MLAs had raised the issue of getting fake calls from Jaitley and Union Minister Nitin Gadkari's office at a meeting of party legislators.
