Giri, meanwhile, continued for the second day his hunger strike outside the residence of Kejriwal, demanding that he prove his allegations regarding the murder of Khan.

The BJP MP had asked Kejriwal to either prove his charge against him or "resign" from the post of Chief Minister. In a tweet, Kejriwal demanded that Girri should be arrested.

"He shud be arrested n interrogated by PM Modi police in MM Khan murder case. Modi police shielding him," he said. Kejriwal, in a letter to Lieutenant Governor Najeeb Jung, had accused him of trying to "save" Girri and New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC) vice-chairman Karan Singh Tanwar in Khan's murder.

Girri had asked Kejriwal for a public debate over his allegations. In a letter to Kejriwal on June 16, Girri had invited him to Constitution Club to produce "evidence" he had against him in the M M Khan murder case on Sunday 4 PM.

Kejriwal did not accept the challenge following which Girri, accompanied by his party supporters, reached the Chief Minister's flagstaff Road residence and sat on hunger strike.

Khan, an estate officer of NDMC, was shot dead in Jamia Nagar on May 16, a day before he was scheduled to pass the final order on the lease terms of a hotel which was functioning on a property leased out by the civic body.
