New Delhi: Slamming Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal for staging protest demanding action against some policemen, Delhi unit of Congress today alleged that his government was trying to implement the British-era Rowlatt Act in the capital.

“Under the Rowlatt Act, one didn't have options of appeal, wakil (lawyer) or dalil (arguments),” DPCC president Arvinder Singh Lovely said, referring to the controversy surrounding Delhi Law Minister Somnath Bharti.  

“Kejriwal is implementing such act in Delhi again. Under this act, no one needs to get search warrant to raid suspect place. We got to see such things when the law minister asked for a raid in Khirki area without any search warrant and informing police,” Lovely told a press conference here.  He said Bharti did not have the power to rule police as per his directive.
