Delhi Police Arrests CM Arvind Kejriwal’s Attacker

NEW DELHI

Police on Tuesday arrested the man who allegedly attacked Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal with chilli powder and further informed the attacker was found to be “unstable and incoherent”.

After arresting 40-year-old Anil Kumar Sharma for attacking the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) chief, the police said that they have registered a case in the matter while adding that no formal complaint has been received from the Chief Minister Secretariat yet.

Sharma threw red chilli powder at Kejriwal outside his chamber at the Delhi secretariat. The man came to the secretariat on the pretext of giving a letter to Kejriwal. He handed the note to the Chief Minister and touched his feet, during which the chilli powder fell from his hand. He then tried to smear the remaining powder on Kejriwal’s face, but was caught by some people.
