Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal was attacked today at Central Secretariat with a youth throwing chilli powder at the Delhi CM. Kejriwal’s spectacles were also broke in the melee. The accused is Anil Kumar Hindustani, 40.
Kejriwal was immediately taken to the doctors. The Aam Aadmi Party has called it a “dangerous attack” on CM Arvind Kejriwal and added that there was a “serious security lapse from Delhi Police.”
“Even the Chief Minister is not safe in Delhi. The man crossed all security barriers and even scanners but the chilli powder was not detected,” AAP said in a statement.
The accused who threw chilli powder on Kejriwal was going out of his chamber was held by the security personnel. Kejriwal was leaving for lunch when the man pouced on Kejriwal with chilli powder.
The incident has triggered a fresh row over the security of the CM of Delhi. Question is how despite the strict security in the secretariat could a man get in with chilli powder?
The BJP has condemned the incident. “I strongly condemn it. This should not be tolerated or justified. The matter should be investigated,” Delhi BJP Chief Manoj Tiwari said.
