Kejriwal to be questioned regarding CS Anshu Prakash assault case

Accusing the BJP-ruled Centre of harassment, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Wednesday said the Delhi Police's notice to Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal to join the investigation into the attack on the Chief Secretary was another attempt to trouble him. However, Kejriwal has not responded to the notice, the official said. Kejriwal has been asked to be available at his residence or office on May 18 at 11am.

The AAP alleged that the police order proved that Prime Minister Narendra Modi was misusing police to target his opponents. "First time in the history of India, the police are questioning the Chief Minister of a state in a fake case", AAP spokesperson Saurabh Bharadwaj said. Additional Deputy Commissioner of Police (North) Harendra Singh said they have sent a notice to Kejriwal, asking him to join the ongoing investigation. "Modi ji is misusing the police to bother the chief minister but people stand by Kejriwal".

The "conspiracy" of assault on Prakash was "hatched" at Kejriwals residence so it was no surprise that he was to be questioned by the police, alleged Vijender Gupta, BJP legislator and Leader of Opposition in the Delhi Assembly.

On February 23, a police team had examined the CCTV camera installed at the Chief Minister's Civil Lines residence and seized the hard disk.

Mr Kejriwal's private secretary Bibhav Kumar, was also questioned by the police last month in this regard. The forensic report on the hard disk is still awaited.

"Now, the Delhi Chief Secretary is being used by Modiji to file a false case against Mr. Kejriwal to delay good governance".

Kejriwal, his former advisor and Deputy Chief Minister were also present there.
