Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), which came under scanner after a media portal exposed a sting operation, has said that they will scrutinise the CCTV footage of the sting done by Media Sarkar.

Party chief Arvind Kejriwal said that the culprits will be treated with right measures as corruption cannot be tolerated in the party. 

Aam Aadmi Party leader Shazia Ilmi has offered to withdraw her candidature from the Delhi assembly elections after a media portal claimed to have conducted a sting operation on her and her senior party colleagues, alleging they were involved in "raising funds through illegal means."

"It is an extremely important fight for AAP. But because of the underhand shoddy sting operation, I will not allow my party's image to be sullied. I offer to withdraw my candidature and not contest elections until and unless my name is cleared," Ms Ilmi said.
