"Don't know why my name is in the FIR," the Aam Aadmi Party leader told reporters. "Without the Prime Minister's approval, a Chief Minister's name doesn't comes in an FIR," he added.

Kejriwal remarks came after the Anti-Corruption Branch (ACB) of the Delhi government slapped a FIR against DCW chief Swati Maliwal on Monday night over complaints of alleged irregular recruitment. "What is my role in this?" Kejriwal asked. "My role has not been mentioned even once in the FIR (First Information Report)." Kejriwal said a special session of the Delhi assembly would be called to discuss the issue.

Earlier on Tuesday, ACB registered an FIR against DCW chief Swati Maliwal in connection with alleged irregularities in recruitment in the women's panel.

"A case under sections 13(D) of Prevention of Corruption Act, 409 (criminal breach of trust) and 120B (punishment of criminal conspiracy) of the IPC has been registered against Maliwal," said a senior ACB officer.

The ACB had taken up the probe on a complaint by former DCW chief Barkha Shukla Singh, who alleged that several AAP supporters were given plum posts in the women's panel. Singh, in her complaint, had listed the names of 85 people who, she claimed, got jobs 'without requisite credentials'.
