New Delhi: The Delhi government on Monday wrote a letter to President Pranab Mukherjee asking for a probe against former chief minister Sheila Dikshit for issuing fake provisional certificates to unauthorised colonies.

On the report submitted by the Lokayukta on the issue, the President had asked for the chief minister's recommendation.

This is the first enquiry that will be conducted by the AAP government against Sheila Dikshit.

In 2008, the Congress government gave provisional certificate to unauthorized colonies. In January 2010, the BJP had filed a complaint.

In 2013, the Lokayukta gave its judgment and indicted the Sheila government and wrote to the President. Their main contention was that it was the violation of code of conduct and integrity.

AAP hit back at Narendra Modi for his remark that humiliation of the African woman by AAP-led government had brought "disgrace" to India globally, saying citizens of all countries living in Delhi were safe.

A day after threatening to withdraw support to the AAP Government, JDU MLA Shoaib Iqbal and Independent MLA Rambeer Shokeen did a U-turn and said they will not go ahead with their threat.

The two legislators, who had teamed up with expelled MLA Vinod Kumar Binny and threatened to pull the plug on the government if their demands were not met, changed their mind after a meeting Kejriwal.

The Delhi Lieutenant Governor has asked Kejriwal why a magisterial probe had been ordered into the killing of an Arunachal student in the capital last week. "If an FIR has been lodged by the police, why seek a separate magisterial probe?" the L-G's query said.

Kejriwal had ordered the probe on Friday. The Chief Minister has reportedly told the L-G that he was dissatisfied with the police performance and hence a separate probe was "a must".

"We have lost confidence in the abilities of the Delhi Police, hence a separate probe is a must," the CM wrote, adding, "The police is an interested party. Therefore, there's a need for an independent inquiry. A number of letters have been written to me from chief Ministers and other leaders of the northeastern states." "I am going ahead with my decision," the CM said.

The Delhi High Court has now taken a suo motu cognisance of the incident and issued notices to the Centre, the Delhi Government and the Delhi Police seeking reports on the measures taken for the safety of the students from the northeast after the incident.

Congress Vice-President Rahul Gandhi asked Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde to order a judicial probe into the death of a student from Arunachal Pradesh allegedly after assault by a group of people here.

According to Union Minister of State for Minority Affairs Ninong Ering, Rahul asked the Home Minister to order the probe into the death of Nido Tania and provide justice to the family.

"Rahulji has called up Shindeji in front of us and requested for the probe. Since the Home Minister is out of station, he told Rahulji that he would do the needful once he is back in Delhi on Tuesday."

Later in the evening, Delhi Police arrested three people for assaulting Nido Taniam.

Meanwhile, Kejriwal in a letter to Delhi Electricity Regulatory Commission (DERC) has asked for the suspension of the licence of BSES if it retorts to power cuts in the national capital.
