Nand Kishor Beniwal, a politician with Aam Aadmi Party, won a seat in the Delhi cantonment elections today, and then landed in controversy when a video appeared to show his supporters throw currency notes in the air to celebrate his victory.

Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leaders did not approve. "We have requested footage and will take action. Throwing money in air is not our party's principle," said AAP politician Atishi Marlena in a TV interview.

Party leader Ashutosh said he had requested for a report on the incident.
