A man threw chilli powder at Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal outside his offices in the Delhi Secretariat, the suspect, identified as Anil Kumar Hindustani, has been taken to IP estate police station.
Meanwhile, the Aam Aadmi Party slammed the Delhi Police for ‘security lapses’. According to the sources the party will hold a conference on this incident later today.
The incident took place at around 2:10 pm, the suspect threw chilli powder at him when he was leaving for lunch. The chilli powder was hidden in a cigarette packet and the suspect was waiting in the visitor’s area.
The chilli powder did not go in the eyes of the CM Arvind Kejriwal as he wears glasses. But the glasses broke as the chief minister tried to avoid the attack.
Raghav Chadha, the AAP spokesperson said he was behind the Chief Minister when the incident took place.
While today just the CM's glasses fell to the floor and broke, an unacceptable security lapse nonetheless.
Imagine if attacker were to be wielding a more dangerous weapon. Who were to have prevented a tragedy from occurring?
