New Delhi, Aug 18 (PTI) Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia Thursday wrote to Union Home Minister Amit Shah urging him to order an "impartial probe" to ascertain on whose instructions the decision to shift Rohingyas to flats here was taken.

Addressing a press conference, Sisodia termed the move to shift Rohingya refugees “a conspiracy” and alleged that the decision in this regard was taken by some central government officials and those of Delhi Police while keeping him and Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal “completely in dark”.

"Hence I have written a letter to home minister and requested that he should first make Centre's stand clear before the country. If the Centre also believes that Rohingyas must not be allowed to settle down, then on whose instruction these decisions were being taken going against even the Centre's stand. An impartial probe should be held into the issue, and whosoever, if they were going against the Centre’s stand or going ahead hiding it from the elected government of Delhi, strict action should be taken against them," he said.
