Arvind Kejriwal summoned by Delhi police for questioning in the Chief Secretary assault case

Arvind Kejriwal has been summoned by the Delhi police on May 18th for questioning in regards to the assault of Delhi chief secretary, Anshu Prakash. The AAP supremo is going to be questioned about his alleged involvement in the assault that occurred at CM’s residence on February 19th. This incident initiated a bitter battle between the executive and bureaucracy in Delhi. In fact, Kejriwal’s key aide had then issued a statement that he saw Prakash being assaulted in front of Kejriwal himself.

Delhi police have already questioned the 11 MLA’s present on that night at CM’s residence. The Chief Secretary was summoned to the CM’s house for a meeting on 19th February to discuss issues related to problems faced by the Delhi government while implementing AADHAR scheme.
