In an early morning development that soon spiralled into a major face-off, Delhi government’s top bureaucrat on Tuesday claimed to have been assaulted by two AAP MLAs at Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s residence. Chief Secretary Anshu Prakash alleged that the incident happened when he was called to discuss the issues of ration distribution and government advertisements late on Monday evening. Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) immediately denied the allegations, terming them as “ludicrous” and accused Prakash of acting at “BJP’s behest”. The party also said the Chief Secretary had used casteist remarks against its MLAs.      

Hours after the Chief Secretary’s allegations became public, AAP MLAs Ashish Khetan and Imran Hussain were allegedly assaulted inside Delhi Secretariat. The identity of the attackers is not certain, though it is said they were secretariat staff. Meanwhile, Home Minister Rajnath Singh has taken cognizance of the matter, after meeting with Chief Secretary Prakash, and sought a report from the Delhi Lieutenant Governor.
