Uttar Pradesh IAS condemn alleged attack on Delhi chief secretary Anshu Prakash

Delhi Chief Secretary'assault case MHA seeks report from L-G Rajnath Singh says'justice will be done

L-G Anil Baijal, Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal and Home Minister Rajnath Singh

On Tuesday, the Chief Secretary alleged that he was manhandled at Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's residence by two lawmakers of the ruling AAP - Ajay Dutt and Prakash Jarwal.

The events took the astonishing turn after an altercation over claims that the officials had not sanctioned advertisements for the Kejriwal government's third anniversary that fell on February 14.

The Delhi Chief Minister's office has outrightly rejected the allegations.

Prakash has accused MLA Amanatullah Khan of manhandling him in a meeting convened by Kejriwal on Monday. "A delegation of IAS DANICS and Subordinate Services of Delhi Government met me today and apprised me of the prevailing situation", the Home Minister tweeted.

Meanwhile, AAP MLA Prakash Jarwal, one of the legislators against whom Anshu Prakash has levelled allegations of assault, said that he had filed a complaint with the National Commission for Scheduled Castes against the "casteist" remarks made by the Delhi chief secretary. The AAP said this was evidence of the sinister design of the BJP to not allow the Kejriwal government to function. "The MHA has sought a report on the incident from the Lieutenant Governor of Delhi".

On whether the police would question Kejriwal, who was present in the meeting, he said, "It is very premature what you are mentioning".

Prakashs case was registered under relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) pertaining to wrongful restraint, criminal intimidation, causing hurt, criminal conspiracy, insult and obstructing a public servant from discharging his duty, Special Commissioner and chief spokesperson of the Delhi Police, Dependra Pathak, said.

Instead, the party says that Prakash was called for discussions on the wrong implementation of the Aadhaar card, which, had resulted in 2.5 lakh families in Delhi without the necessities of food.

As per the written complaint given by Anshu to the DCP office at Civil Lines, "I was informed on telephone at 8:45 pm about a meeting with the CM and that I have to reach the CM's residence by midnight".

"He (Chief Secretary) used bad language against some MLAs and left without answering any questions".

"Now he (CS) is making such ludicrous allegations".

About the incident, Hussain said, "I don't know whether they were government employees, but I will identify them".
