Leaders of AAP accused the Delhi Police of compromising the security of Chief Minister by leaking his schedule.
Women activists followed him, as the Chief Minister of Delhi boarded a Shatabdi train to Ludhiana. They are shouting slogans against sacked AAP minister Sandeep Kumar.

Deputy chief minister of Delhi – Manish Sisodia targeted Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the BJP and said that the crowd was part of a conspiracy at the railway station.
Sisodia tweeted in Hindi that Why did this happen despite the police being informed about the schedule of Chief Minister? He is pushed around in the presence of the police, and they were silent spectators. TV cameras had been called. It is sure that everything was planned.
Leaders of AAP also accused the police of leaving Arvind Kejriwal unprotected.
As per the reports that the Delhi police said that during his Punjab tour, it will not be able to provide security to the Chief Minister as it does not have jurisdiction there.
The PTI quoted a senior Delhi Police officials as saying that we have not refused him to provide security. He is leaving Delhi for Punjab for five days. As per the security norms, if he travels by car or train, we are supposed to drop him at the first destination in that state and after that, the state police takes over.
In Punjab, the elections will be held next year. CM Arvind Kejriwal will oversee selection of candidates amid allegations of corruption in distribution of election ticket that led to the party sacking its chief of Punjab Unit Sucha Singh Chhotepur.
