Delhi Court has discharged Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal, Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia, and nine others against the mishandling of a senior Delhi government official in 2018. However, the court has an order to frame charges against Amanatullah Khan and Prakash Jarwal.
While addressing a press conference, Deputy Chief Minister – Manish Sisodia claimed a “conspiracy” by Delhi Police against Arvind Kejriwal had been uncovered.
He also told reporters that “The court has said that all allegations were baseless and false. We were saying from the first day these allegations are false. There was a conspiracy against Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal…”
Delhi Deputy CM said BJP leaders including PM Narendra Modi should apologize to Arvind Kejriwal for “trying to taint his image by conspiring against him” in the Anshu Prakash assault case.
Moreover, he added to his statement that “The Delhi Police hatched this conspiracy at the directive of PM Modi and Bhartiya Janta Party. However, it was a false case but today the court refused to frame charges. He said that today is the day of Satyamev Jayate (truth always wins)…
Delhi Police filed a charge sheet claiming the attack was deliberate and named Mr Kejriwal and Mr Sisodia among the accused. Investigators also suspected a cover-up by the AAP leaders, which involved disconnecting several CCTVs to prevent the incident from being recorded.
On February 19 and 20, 2018, the Prakash was called for a meeting at Kejriwal’s residence, where the former Chief Secretary alleged that he was assaulted by APP MLAs.
