The Delhi police on Sunday morning arrested AAP MLA Rituraj Govind from Kirari in North West Delhi. He was accused of assault during Chhatpuja celebrations.

This comes three days after Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia were detained on November 3, when they had gone to meet the family of Ram Kishan Grewal, a former subedar in the army from Bamla village in Haryana, who had committed suicide.
