Assault on CS: Cops quiz AAP MLA Rajesh Rishi for two hrs

New Delhi: The Delhi Police on Thursday questioned AAP MLA Rajesh Rishi for two hours in connection with the alleged assault on Chief Secretary Anshu Prakash, even as the party accused the force of acting in a "partisan manner" and not taking any action on the alleged attack on AAP minister Imran Hussain.
Two Aam Aadmi Party MLAs – Nitin Tyagi and Rajesh Rishi – were on Thursday summoned by the police for questioning at Civil Lines Police Station by 4 pm.
While Tyagi, the Laxmi Nagar MLA, excused himself saying he was in Kolkata and sought a week's time to appear for questioning, Rishi had failed to reach the Civil Lines Police Station by the stipulated time citing illness, the police said. He, however, reached the police station at around 6 pm.
Some more AAP MLAs are likely to be summoned for questioning after Holi in connection with the alleged assault on Prakash in presence of Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia on the night of February 19-20, a senior police officer said.
Senior AAP leader Ashutosh accused the police of acting in a "partisan manner" and not taking any step in the case of the alleged attack on minister Imran Hussain at the Secretariat.
