Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday claimed an official of the Delhi and District Cricket Association (DDCA) had allegedly asked for sex in return for selection of cricketers, said a TV report.

Talking to NDTV, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) convenor said there is more to the DDCA scam than just financial irregularities.

"His (A senior journalist's) son plays cricket. He told me his son was selected, he got a call that his son was selected. In the evening when the list came, his name was not there. Can you believe that the next day, the journalist's wife got an SMS that 'you come to my (official's) place at night, your son's selection will be done'?" NDTV quoted the Delhi chief minister as saying.

Though Kejriwal did not reveal the name of the journalist during the interview, he claimed the scribe is ready to depose before a probe panel.

Kejriwal added that he is not afraid of the CBI and that the Central probe agency is free to conduct an inquiry against him.

On Monday, the BJP had demanded apology from the Delhi chief minister over his graft allegations against Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, who had headed the Delhi cricketing body for 13 years.

However, Kejriwal took to Twitter and said: "BJP almost begging me for an apology. Sorry. I won't oblige them. Let Jaitley ji be cross-examined in defamation cases. Let truth prevail (sic)."
