“We are demanding... we are warning Delhi Police," Kejriwal told the media.

He demanded the suspension of the Station House Officers (SHO) of Sagarpur and Malviya Nagar police stations and two Assistant Commissioners of Police.

The Chief Minister said the Sagarpur SHO did not arrest members of a family who allegedly set their daughter-in-law on fire.

Kejriwal accused the SHO of Malviya Nagar of complicity with a bunch of foreigners in south Delhi allegedly involved in prostitution and drugs.

"People are not going to be mute spectators to what is going on," he said.

Meanwhile, Delhi Police Commissioner B S Bassi downplayed any rift between the police and the Chief Minister.

“There is no war between the police and the Chief Minister,” he said.

The Chief Minister denied the charge that his ministers were interfering in the work of Delhi Police, saying it was the duty of the ministers to speak and act if they witnessed crime.

He also sought an explanation from the Delhi Police over rising incidents of rape in the national capital as compared to other parts of the country.
