Delhi police likely to book Arvind Kejriwal for criminal conspiracy in Chief Secretary assault case

Delhi’s Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal might be heading for trouble in the Chief Secretary assault case after a Hindustan Times report has claimed that the Delhi police is likely to book him for criminal conspiracy in this matter. As per the report, a chargesheet would be filed at the Tis Hazari court in this regard by next week.

As per an India Today report, besides Kejriwal, Delhi’s deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia and 11 other AAP MLAs are also likely to be part of the chargesheet.

On the stroke of midnight of 19 February, when the national capital slept, AAP MLAs were very much awake at Kejriwal’s residence to attend a meeting where Chief Secretary Anshu Prakash too was invited.

The meeting though bore witness to extraordinary scenes as when Prakash raised questions regarding AAP government’s excess spending on advertisements, Kejriwal’s aides got enraged and allegedly proceeded to assault him.

These version of events were also corroborated by Kejriwal’s aide VK Jain who was reported as claiming that he found AAP MLAs Amanatullah Khan and Prakash Jarwal assaulting the Chief Secretary, when he returned from a washroom break.

Even though Kejriwal has not yet been named as an accused in the FIR, or arrested for the matter, he has ended up getting questioned by the Delhi police on two occasions. One of the aspects which the Delhi police wanted to probe in this regards was whether the assault was pre-planned.

The news of the chargesheet filing incidentally comes a few days after Kejriwal staged a high profile dharna at the lieutenant governor’s residence, while alleging that IAS officers working under him were on a four month long strike, which started following the alleged assault on the chief secretary.

The IAS association though had rubbished these allegations and in turn asserted how victimised and threatened they were feeling.
