AAP to lodge police complaint over attack on Kejriwal: Sisodia

"They are saying they do not have a complaint. This means the BJP, through the Delhi Police, is sending a clear message that if anyone tries to attack the Delhi chief minister or even kills him, he will be saved by the party and the police will not do anything to him. The message is clear," Sisodia told a press conference here.

New Delhi: The AAP will lodge a police complaint over Saturday's attack on Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, his deputy Manish Sisodia said on Sunday, alleging that the BJP was sending a message that even if someone tried to kill the CM, he would be spared.

At a press conference earlier in the day, Kejriwal himself held the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) responsible for the attack on him during a roadshow in the national capital and accused the police of following the "script" given by the ruling party.

The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) supremo was slapped allegedly by a disgruntled supporter of his party during a roadshow at Moti Nagar on Saturday.

"Such a big conspiracy was hatched against the chief minister. There was an attack on his convoy and the Delhi Police released the perpetrator.

"They are saying they do not have a complaint. This means the BJP, through the Delhi Police, is sending a clear message that if anyone tries to attack the Delhi chief minister or even kills him, he will be saved by the party and the police will not do anything to him. The message is clear," Sisodia told a press conference here.

He said the AAP had decided to lodge a complaint and party leader Sanjay Singh would meet the police commissioner on Sunday.

The police had said on Saturday that the preliminary interrogation of the man who attacked Kejriwal, identified as Suresh (33), had revealed that he was an AAP supporter.

An inquiry by a deputy commissioner of police-level officer was ordered to find out how this person was allowed to be in the reception group for the AAP supremo, Additional Public Relations Officer (PRO), Delhi Police Anil Mittal had said.

Rejecting Kejriwal's allegations, Union minister and senior BJP leader Prakash Javadekar also claimed on Sunday that the man who attacked the Delhi chief minister had himself said he was an AAP worker.

"This kind of attacks, involving him (Kejriwal), have taken place 10 times. Every time, the same thing happens. Whenever he finds himself lagging behind (in the poll race), he gets himself attacked. This is his propaganda," he alleged.
