Kejriwal tweeted that his office was sealed Monday and that investigators were going through his files. Then he accused Modi of a political vendetta against him.
Since Kejriwal’s stunning victory earlier this year when his Common Man Party nearly wiped out Modi’s Bharatiya Janata Party in the elections, ties have been rough. Kejriwal has repeatedly accused Modi’s government of not letting him function freely.
An official at the Central Bureau of Investigation said the target of the raid was Kumar, not Kejriwal. He said investigators raided a total of 14 locations in New Delhi and in the northern state of Uttar Pradesh. On Twitter, the raid set off a storm.
