Punjab polls: Case against Kejriwal order; security for Kumar Vishwas day before voting

An order to file a police case against Arvind Kejriwal, and extra security for his friend-turned-foe Kumar Vishwas. These developments occurred a day before the politically significant Assembly elections in Punjab.

The order was issued following a complaint by a leader of the Shiromani Akali Dal. Arshdeep Singh reportedly accused the AAP of maligning Akali Dal and other parties' image in the eyes of the general public. The AAP video reportedly called other parties "traitors". The Chief Electoral Officer said that the video violated the Model Code of Conduct.

Meanwhile, rebel AAP leader Kumar Vishwas was accorded Y-category security, according to reports quoting government sources. The increased security cover came amid Vishwas' war of words with Kejriwal over the latter's alleged closeness to Khalistani separatist elements.

Vishwas' allegations were used by Congress and BJP to attack the Delhi CM of encouraging separatists for electoral gain.

Punjab is voting on February 20 with results being announced on March 10.
