Alongside traffic operations, Delhi Police has also stepped up security outside the CBI headquarters as Kejriwal appeared before the agency on Sunday in connection with alleged irregularities in the now-scrapped excise policy, officials said.
Over 1,000 security personnel, including paramilitary forces, have been deployed outside the CBI headquarters and section 144 has also been imposed in the area to ensure no gathering of more than four persons takes place.
The minister has been summoned by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) at its office to answer questions of the investigation team as a witness in the excise police case, according to a notice issued by the CBI.
