Plunging the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) into a new crisis on Sunday, Kapil Mishra had claimed that he saw Jain hand over Rs 2 crore in cash to CM Kejriwal at his residence on Friday.

The BJP and the Congress immediately demanded the resignation of Kejriwal but the ruling AAP maintained silence over the issue.

Through his tenure as a minister, Mishra has repeatedly flogged the scam, relating to alleged irregularities in hiring of private tankers to supply water, which he claimed involves Dikshit and even a “few people in the AAP government”.

Kejriwal had constituted a fact-finding committee to probe the allegations in June 2015. The report was submitted in August 2015, recommending an FIR against Dikshit.

The then Lt Governor Najeeb Jung had forwarded it to the Anti-Corruption Branch, which in turn had registered FIRs against both Dikshit and Mishra.
