The cabinet ministers of the AAP government on Monday dubbed the Delhi Police charge sheet filed in connection with the alleged assault on chief secretary Anshu Prakash “bogus” and said it was another example of a “witch-hunt” by the Modi government. They alleged it was the way of the BJP top brass to seek “revenge” for the party’s “electoral humiliation” in the 2015 Delhi Assembly elections.
The charge sheet in the case, filed by the Delhi Police before Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Samar Vishal earlier today, named Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and his deputy Manish Sisodia as accused. Prakash was allegedly assaulted during a meeting at Kejriwal’s official residence on February 19.
The police said the chief minister was present when the alleged assault took place. The “bogus” charge sheet is based on “imaginary and false allegations” against the chief minister and his deputy and is another example of “unprecedent witch-hunt” against the Delhi government, the ministers said in a joint statement.
