New Delhi: Former cricketer and Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) MP Kirti Azad on Monday night in a tweet alleged threat to his life and warned Finance Minister Arun Jaitley saying that he was not afraid of “impotent” people. However, in an apparent volte-face just one hour after the controversial post, Azad tweeted that his account was “hacked”.

“I was visited at home by so many agencies to take precaution against threat to my life. Dear darta nahin hoon napunsako se (sic),” Azad tweeted at 11:51 pm on Monday night.

However, he was able to take control of his Twitter account just one hour later, claiming his account was hacked and that the tweet on Arun Jaitley was not posted by him.

The Twitterati gave Azad a powerful dressing down, questioning why he did not delete his controversial tweet after his account was hacked.

This came as Azad – who has alleged massive financial irregularities in Delhi’s cricket board – called for a CBI inquiry in the scam in the Lok Sabha on Monday and also dared Jaitley to sue him.

Meanwhile, the Delhi High Court on Tuesday issued a notice to Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and five other AAP leaders in a defamation suit filed by Finance Minister Arun Jaitley.

The court sought replies from Kejriwal, Kumar Vishwas, Raghav Chadha, Ashutosh, Sanjay Singh and Deepak Bajpai by February 5, 2016.

Jaitley has sought Rs.10 crore in damages following the AAP leaders’ statements on alleged Delhi and District Cricket Association irregularities.

Jaitley also filed a criminal defamation complaint in a Patiala House court, saying that the statements of these leaders would cause “irreversible damage” to his reputation.

Jaitley headed the DDCA for 13 years till 2013.

Kejriwal has demanded that Jaitley must resign or be removed as union minister to enable free and fair probe into the DDCA issue. (With inputs from agencies)
