Today in the afternoon, Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal was attacked while leaving for lunch. The attacker identified as Anil Kumar Sharma, a Naraina resident had chilli powder packed in a Gutkha packet.
When Kejriwal left his office at Delhi Secretariat for lunch, Sharma stepped upto him & said, “Aap hi se umeed hai”. Then he bends to touch Kejriwal’s feet. Kejriwal ignored Sharma touching his feet. Sharma at that instance threw chilli powder at the CM’s face. Kejriwal’s spectacles fell on the ground & broke. Sharma was nabbed.
The attack drew sharp reactions from AAP. The Aam Aadmi Party said, “It was a serious security lapse”. The party tweeted, “even the Chief Minister is not safe in Delhi”.
