The trial court had on October 22 allowed the plea of Prakash seeking direction to conduct the prosecution through the counsel nominated by the Delhi Police and not through lawyers empanelled by the AAP government.
Anshu Prakash had filed the application in September, after Delhi Home Minister Satyendar Jain twice rejected the request of the Delhi Police, through Additional Chief Secretary Manoj Parida, to get three SPPs appointed in the high-profile case.
The court allowed the prosecution to be conducted by an officer of Delhi Police not below the rank of Additional Commissioner of Police who has not been connected with the investigation of this case in any manner.
The alleged assault took place on the intervening night of February 19-20 at the CM’s residence, when Chief Secretary Anshu Prakash was called for a meeting. A case was registered on Prakash’s complaint.
