Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has been asked to join the investigation into an alleged assault on Chief Secretary Anshu Prakash by two AAP MLAs, police said on Wednesday, sparking an angry reaction from the AAP.
On February 20, the Chief Secretary alleged that he was assaulted by two Aam Aadmi Party MLAs in the presence of Kejriwal at the Chief Minister's residence. The two, Amanatullah Khan and Prakash Jarwal, were arrested.
He said Modi "pressured" the Chief Secretary to file this case of assault so as to harass Kejriwal whose government, he said, was working well in the sectors of education, health, electricity and water.
"Modiji is misusing the police to trouble him (Kejriwal) but the public is with Kejriwal."
Delhi Police have questioned Bibhav Kumar, Kejriwal's private secretary, in connection with the case.
So far, the police have questioned 11 AAP MLAs who were present in the meeting at the Chief Minister's residence on February 19.
