New Delhi, Jan 19: Intelligence agencies have alerted police authorities about a possible attempt to kidnap Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal by the Indian Mujahideen (IM) to free one of its founder Yasin Bhatkal who was arrested last August. The Additional Commissioner of Police (Delhi) has reportedly sought a meeting with the chief minister to discuss his security arrangements.

Kejriwal has repeatedly turned down offers from the police not once but four times. Earlier this month, he turned down the offer of the Uttar Pradesh government to provide him with the security level of the highest level after the AAP's office in Kaushambi in Ghaziabad in UP was vandalised by a right-wing outfit.

Meanwhile, an alarm was raised at Bangalore Airport after intelligence sources warned about a possible hijacking by the Indian Mujahideen (IM) to free its founder-member Yasin Bhatkal who is currently being interrogated by the Karnataka police.

A special NIA court on Friday handed over the custody of Indian Mujahideen (IM) co-founder Yasin Bhatkal to the Karnataka pol­ice till January 28. The police will interrogate him on his involvement in the blasts at the Chinnaswamy St­ad­i­um in Bangalore in April 2010.
