Chilly powder thrown at Delhi CM Kejriwal

New Delhi: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal was on Tuesday attacked by a middle-aged man with chilly powder inside the Delhi Secretariat.

The man was waiting outside the Chief Minister’s office and attacked him when Kejriwal stepped out, AAP spokesperson Saurabh Bhardwaj said. “Kejriwal’s eyes were not affected in the attack as he was wearing spectacles.”

However, a scuffle broke out and Kejriwal’s spectacles broke, a witness said.

The suspect was identified as Anil Kumar Sharma and was caught by police personnel. The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) called it a breach of security of the Chief Minister.

A person needs to go through a two-level security check to reach the Chief Minister’s office.

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Tuesday condemned the chilli powder attack on Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, saying such acts are not acceptable.

“Heard that someone has thrown chilli powder on Kejriwal. I condemn it,” Delhi BJP chief Manoj Tiwari told reporters.

He said that such acts are “not acceptable” and the person who has been arrested for attacking the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) Convener should be thoroughly interrogated.
