IPS officer-turned social activist Kiran Bedi yesterday said that she will not be attending the swearing-in ceremony of Arvind Kejriwal as Delhi Chief Minister on Saturday owing to her prior engagements.

"I will be in Bangalore that day due to my prior engagements. Moreover, I have not yet received any formal invitaion for the ceremony," she told reporters here on the sidelines of a function.

Anna Hazare has also said that he would not be attending the ceremony owing to ill-health.

Kejriwal had earlier said Hazare, Bedi and Justice Santosh Hegde would be invited to the ceremony.

Hazare and his team of supporters, which includes Kiran Bedi, had parted ways with Kejriwal following his decision to form a political party.
