Sharma is reported to have made the statement in the court of the Metropolitan Magistrate. His application for bail was rejected by the Court. MM Malhotra observed, “I have seen the CCTV footage obtained from the Secretariat. (It) shows that, initially, the accused bent down to touch the feet of Mr Arvind Kejriwal… and thereafter, he immediately used criminal force in order to hurt Mr Kejriwal, and in the process, he is able to drag down the spectacles worn by him. A pouch containing spices/red chilli is also stated to have been recovered from the spot…”
