NEW DELHI: Arvind Kejriwal's role in leading a protest while holding constitutional office today came under the scrutiny of the Supreme Court which slammed law enforcing agencies of allowing unlawful assembly of supporters of the Chief Minister in the heart of national capital.

The apex court disapproved the Delhi Police inaction in permitting people to gather outside the Rail Bhavan despite prohibitory orders under Section 144 of Code of Criminal Procedure barring assembly of five a .. 

Observing that "the task in hand is to see that the constitutional provisions are respected," the bench sought explanation by January 31 from the Police Commissioner why people were allowed to gather unlawfully at the site of dharna by Kejriwal.

AAP party was demanding action against policemen who refused to carry out a raid on an alleged drug and prostitution ring on a Delhi minister Somnath Bharti's directive last week.
