The Supreme Court Friday issued notice on a PIL seeking action against Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal for violating the law while holding a constitutional position.

An apex court bench headed by Justice R.M. Lodha issued notice to the centre through the home secretary and also to the Delhi government after petitioner M.L. Sharma contended that a law maker cannot be a law breaker at the same time.

This invited an observation by Justice Lodha that there cannot be a dual personality.

Kejriwal had staged a 36-hour sit-in earlier this week in the heart of the capital to seek action against the Delhi Police for not heeding the orders of his ministers. The stir ended after two police officers were sent on leave.
