It was currently being used by an AAP functionary.The car had hit the headlines in 2015 when donor of the car, Kundan Sharma, a software engineer, had demanded that Kejriwal return the car, in protest of the ouster of party leaders Prashant Bhushan and Yogendra Yadav. While the Delhi police falls under the jurisdiction of the Centre, Kejriwal criticised the Delhi police by asking on Twitter where its "dhyan" or attention is focused.
