The car had been earlier stolen on October 12 from outside of Delhi Secretariat. An FIR had been registered regarding the stolen car by Delhi Police.
The car was donated to Kejriwal by Kundan Sharma, a software engineer, in January 2013.
It was very famous as Kejriwal had used it on many occasions during his protests in the national capital. The Wagon R was called the "AAP Mobile" as Kejriwal had used to sleep and camp in it during many protests.
Further, it was used as a symbol by Kejriwal to fight against the VVIP culture among government office incumbents. Kejriwal had also used this car during campaigning of first election that he contested in Delhi.
