New Delhi: Congress legislator Asif Muhammad Khan Thursday disrupted Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's press conference and vowed to vote against his government, come what may.

A furious Khan also asked the Congress to take back its critical legislative support to the month-old AAP government for what he said was a "betrayal" of a promise made by Kejriwal to Muslims in his area.

Khan is a legislator from Okhla where a controversial shootout between Delhi Police and suspected Indian Mujahideen members in September 2008 left a police officer and two alleged militants dead.

A third suspect was arrested and a fourth escaped. The killings generated controversy after it was alleged that those killed were not militants.

Khan said Kejriwal had earlier promised a Special Investigating Team probe - like the one the chief minister wants into the 1984 killings of Sikhs - into the shootout at Batla House but was now refusing to do so.
