Delhi Chief Secretary Anshu Prakash was allegedly assaulted by Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MLAs during a meeting at Delhi Chief Minister and AP convenor Arvind Kejriwal’s residence on Monday.
The AAP has denied the allegations and Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh has sought a report on the alleged attack from Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal.
Prakash was reportedly called for a meeting around midnight on Monday where Kejriwal along with his deputy Manish Sisodia and 10 to 12 MLAs was present. The meeting was on “some advertisements by the Delhi government which were in violation of the Supreme Court’s guidelines”.
The chief minister’s office (CMO), however, has dismissed the accusation of Chief Secretary Anshu Prakash being assaulted last night as “bizarre and baseless”.
