Assault on Imran Hussain: Cops yet to get CCTV footage

New Delhi: Delhi Police on Thursday claimed that they have again asked the Delhi government for CCTV footage of the incident where Delhi Environment Minister Imran Hussain was assaulted by the mob in Delhi Secretariat.
According to a senior officer, the police had earlier written to the Secretariat to provide the footages.
However, as of Thursday evening, police are yet to receive it.
"We again reminded them to give the footages to start the investigation," said the officer.
Hussain was assaulted and his phone was broken during the incident.
Sources in Delhi Police claimed that the investigation could be transferred to the Crime Branch for better investigation.
In the FIR, Hussain had claimed that he could identify the persons who were involved in the assault.
The FIR was registered under sections 323, 342, 506, 427 and 34 of the Indian Penal Code, with police claiming that no names have been given in it.
Meanwhile, Aam Aadmi Party leaders on Thursday identified five Delhi government officials for assaulting Hussain and his assistant.
Stating that there is no rule of law under Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal, who was "working as a BJP agent," AAP leaders demanded action against those involved in manhandling and beating up the party's Minister and his aide.
Identifying a few in the mob as Khatri, Sandeep Suhag, Superintendent Sahil, Sonu from the AR department, AAP leader Ashutosh said many others could be identified and demanded action against them.
He said video evidence was also there against those who heckled party leader Ashish Khetan and his aide Sahil Arora.
"On the basis of a baseless complaint by the Chief Secretary, two party MLAs were arrested without evidence, while those who beat our Ministers and their aides are roaming free," Ashutosh said.
He accused the LG of working as an agent of the BJP agent and "trying to destabilise Delhi's Arvind Kejriwal government."
"Everybody has seen the video. (Still) no FIR was lodged against the culprits," the AAP leader said.
Meanwhile, Delhi Police is still waiting for the CCTV footages in the alleged assault case of Delhi Chief Secretary Anshu Prakash as well. A senior police official claimed that they will gather the CCTV footages in a few days.
