Indian politics sunk to a new low Monday when the Delhi chief minister, Arvind Kejriwal, called Prime Minister Narendra Modi a “psychopath and a “coward”.
CBI raided Kejriwal’s office Monday as part of a probe into corruption allegations by Principal Secretary to Chief Minister Rajendra Kumar.
“When Modi could not handle me politically, he resorts to this cowardice. Modi is a coward and psychopath,” Kejriwal tweeted.

However, finance minister Arun Jaitley denied the Delhi CM’s claims. “The CBI raid has nothing to do with Arvind Kejriwal and his office. The raid is in relation to corruption case against an officer,” Jaitley informed the Rajya Sabha.
A CBI spokesperson said the searches were being conducted at the office of the principal secretary Rajendra Kumar. Searches were being conducted at 14 locations, the spokesperson said, but did not give details.
