CS assault case: Court grants bail to Kejriwal, Manish Sisodia
A Delhi Court has granted bail to Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia in the Chief Secretary Anshu Prakash assault case. Prakash was allegedly assaulted during a meeting at Kejriwal's official residence on February 19 and a case was registered following a complaint. The court has now put up the matter for further hearing on December 7. Here's more.
All the accused in the case were granted bail on a personal bond of Rs. 50,000 except Amanatullah Khan and Prakash Jarwal. Khan and Jarwal were earlier granted bail by the Delhi High Court.
Prakash, Delhi Chief Secretary, says he was summoned by Kejriwal on February 19 to discuss some schemes. But AAP lawmakers Amanatullah Khan and Prakash Jarwal allegedly abused and manhandled him in front of the CM. AAP termed the allegations "ludicrous," adding Prakash had refused to answer questions by MLAs and Kejriwal and used "bad language." It also accused BJP of creating obstacles for AAP.
