Next date for scrutiny of documents is scheduled for 7th December.
Earlier this year in February, Delhi Chief Secretary Anshu Prakash had registered a complaint with the Delhi Lieutenant Governor (LG) that AAP MLAs, in front of Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal, had assaulted him at the CM’s residence when he was there for a meeting. However, the CMO had denied the allegations.
Following the accusations, not only there was no apology issued, but one of AAP MLAs justified the attack as well as appeared to be encouraging mob violence against people who were perceived as corrupt. In a letter to DCP North, Prakash had described the incident where he said that he was threatened with false cases against him under SC/ST act and physically assaulted by MLA Amanatullah Khan and another MLA who he claimed that he could identify. He has also claimed that he was assaulted in the presence of Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.
In August this year, the Delhi Police had filed a charge sheet naming Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal, deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia and 11 other AAP MLAs for criminal conspiracy.
