Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and his deputy Manish Sisodia will be charged by the police with criminal conspiracy over the alleged attack on a top bureaucrat in February. Sources say the police have prepared a charge-sheet based on the evidence and statements of many and it is set to be filed soon.
Chief Secretary Anshu Prakash has alleged that he was manhandled and assaulted at a late night meeting at Mr Kejriwal’s home on February 19. Anshu Prakash has alleged that in Mr Kejriwal’s presence, he was attacked by lawmakers of Delhi’s ruling Aam Aadmi Party (AAP). Kejriwal was questioned and his home was searched twice by the police in connection with the incident.
AAP has alleged that Mr Prakash and several other bureaucrats have skipped meetings and refused to cooperate since then.
