New Delhi: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal was assaulted by a man during his road show in Moti Nagar area here on Saturday.
Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) Arvind Kejriwal was atop an open jeep when a man wearing a red t-shirt jumped onto the vehicle and slapped the Chief Minister.
The man has been taken into the custody and an investigation into the matter is underway, said police. DCP (West) Monika Bhardwaj said the man has been identified as Suresh, 33, and he deals in spare parts in Kailash Park.
However, this is not the first time that his security has been breached. In November 2018, a man had attacked the Chief Minister with chilli powder inside the Delhi Secretariat.
AAP condemned the cowardly act and said that opposition sponsored attack cannot stop AAP in Delhi.
"Another negligence in the security of CM @ArvindKejriwal. Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal got attacked during the roadshow. We condemned this cowardly act. This opposition sponsored attack cannot stop the Aam Aadmi in Delhi," tweeted AAP.
