In a dramatic press conference that ended with sacked minister Kapil Mishra fainting, the former accused (AAP) convener Kejriwal of corruption and warned him to resign by the evening.

Meanwhile, Mishra has been rushed to the hospital. According to reports, doctors from Hospital (RML) are treating him.

Doctors had yesterday advised hospitalisation to Mishra due to drop in blood sugar level and dehydration, but he refused to do so.

Earlier addressing a press conference, Mishra said, "Kejriwal, have some shame. If you don't resign by today evening, I will drag you from your office to Tihar Jail. I'm Kapil Mishra."

Mishra further alleged that for three continuous years, was converted into white and spent on foreign trips of the leaders.

"did not inform about some of its fundings which it received from fake companies," he said.

Mishra further targeted Kejriwal and revealed that 16 shell companies added money worth crores in AAP's bank accounts.

"These fake companies are registered in the name of MLA from Moti Nagar, Shivcharan Goyal. These companies have given Rs 2 crore to Kejriwal at 12 a.m. The fund received from these companies were sent to same branch branch of Axis Bank where there were allegations of converting into white at the time of demonetisation," he added.

AAP has its bank account at the Krishnanagar branch of Axis Bank and all the transactions happen from there.

Mishra also shared a bank cheque without a date which has already been encashed.

"I file case against Kejriwal in Central Bureau of Investigation on Monday in connection with conversion of to white," the AAP leader said.

Meanwhile, the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) on Sunday sent a summons notice to the political advisor of Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, Vaibhav Kumar in connection with water tanker scam.

Kumar will be interrogated by the ACB on May 17.

Last Thursday, Mishra made "serious allegations" against senior government functionaries in relation to the water tanker scam, which is alleged to have caused a loss of an estimated Rs. 400 crore to the State exchequer, in a detailed statement to the Anti-Corruption Branch (ACB).

Earlier, Mishra submitted documents related to the tanker scam to the ACB, while saying that he also apprised the agency about the misuse of the money by the Delhi government.
