A furious Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal directed an extraordinarily sharp attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi, calling him a "coward and psychopath" after his office was allegedly raided by the CBI.
What followed was a barrage of shocked tweets directed at the chief minister for using language that some claimed tarnished the dignity of his office.

Your abuses won't make you @ArvindKejriwal a hero. Why didn't you check what your principle secretary was upto or did u know?— shilpi tewari (@shilpitewari) December 15, 2015
@ArvindKejriwal while I understand your frustration, tweeting so much bad for PM of country is also not good. Please be calm.— S K (@skhere4u) December 15, 2015
Get well soon @ArvindKejriwal— Shashi Shekhar (@shashidigital) December 15, 2015
According to reports, the CBI has said it has registered a case against Secretary to the Chief Minister, Rajendra Kumar, on allegations of abusing his official position by "favouring a particular firm in the last few years in getting tenders from Delhi government departments."
Meanwhile, some of the chief minister's supporters have initiated a hashtag called #ModiFearsKejriwal
