Assault on Imran Hussain: Cops nab Delhi govt official
New Delhi: Police on Wednesday said that they have arrested a Delhi government official in connection with the alleged assault on Delhi Food minister Imran Hussain in February.
The arrest comes on the same day when the Delhi Police sent a notice to Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, asking him to join investigation on Friday, in connection with the assault on Delhi Chief Secretary Anshu Prakash.
Prakash was allegedly assaulted by Aam Aadmi Party MLAs on February 19, at the Chief Minister's residence.
Hussain, meanwhile, had on February 20 lodged a complaint with Delhi Police, claiming he was assaulted by officials and staff at the Delhi Secretariat, hours after the Chief Secretary was allegedly attacked by AAP legislators at Kejriwal's residence.
A senior Delhi Police officer said that one Ravinder Parmar, reportedly in his 50s was arrested in central Delhi after questioning.
Parmar had been called by police for questioning on a couple of occasions earlier as well and he had been named by Hussain in his complaint.
The accused was identified as one of the assaulters on the basis of CCTV footage obtained from the Secretariat, cops added.
