Assault on Delhi Chief Secretary: L-G submits report to Home Ministry

IANS | New Delhi |

Delhi Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal on Wednesday submitted a report to the Home Ministry on the alleged assault on Chief Secretary Anshu Prakash by AAP MLAs.

“The Ministry has received the L-G’s report. The criminal aspect of the matter will be taken care of by Delhi Police while the Ministry will look into the administrative issues involved if the Chief Secretary was assaulted,” a Home Ministry official said.

The Ministry had sought a report on the issue on Tuesday.

Prakash was allegedly assaulted by AAP MLAs at a meeting at Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s residence here, sparking protests on Tuesday and threats of a pen-down strike in government offices in the capital.

The ruling Aam Aadmi Party denied the allegation even as the IAS Association Secretary Manisha Saxena complained to Baijal, claiming the attack on Monday night was a “planned criminal conspiracy” against the top bureaucrat.
