Delhi Minister Rakhi Birla was approached again by Delhi Police to provide security but the AAP leader refused saying she was safe among the people and even gave it in writing.

According to police sources, an official himself visited Birla's house in Mangolpuri on Thursday with a letter of the Delhi Police to convince her to take security. "We have written a letter to her requesting to accept the positional security offered to Ministers but she refused," the official said.

Sources in Aam Aadmi Party said the Delhi Minister refused to take security saying she was safe among the people and even gave it in writing. Security should be given to the people and women on the roads and other places, she was quoted as saying.

The 26-year-old Women and Child Development Minister had lodged a complaint at Mangolpuri police station on January 5 stating that someone had thrown a stone at her windscreen while she was returning from a function in the area.

She later withdrew her complaint when asked by Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal after it was revealed that the windscreen had been accidently hit by a cricket ball while some boys were playing in the area.

On Friday, Kejriwal had met the 11-year-old boy whose ball had damaged Birla's car's windscreen along with his family at his office.
