"“Under Delhi government’s ‘Farishte’ scheme of free-of-cost medical treatment at any private hospital, those affected in this violence can get medical treatment.”" - Arvind Kejriwal, Delhi Chief Minister

The Delhi government will also set up special camps for people to get duplicates of documents burnt during arson, Kejriwal added.

Kejriwal also said that any person found guilty should be given stringent punishment, ANI reported.

“If any Aam Aadmi Party person is found guilty then that person should be given double the punishment. There should be no politics on the issue of national security,” Kejriwal said, referring to AAP Councillor Tahir Hussain, who is in the eye of a storm around the death of Ankit Sharma, an Intelligence Bureau (IB) official.

Sharma’s father Ravinder, also an IB employee, has alleged that Hussain’s supporters killed his son. However, the councillor has denied any involvement, claiming that his house was broken-into and he was rescued by the police.

He called for an impartial probe into the incident and said action should be taken against the guilty.

"It is wrong to target me. I and my family have nothing to do with it," Hussain said.
