The police have stated in the chargesheet that the midnight meeting held by the chief minister, where the assault is said to have taken place, was the first one in three years. The document also alleges that only six out of 21 CCTV cameras at the chief minister's office were functioning.

The Delhi Police has also alleged that the wires of the rest of the CCTVs were "deliberately disconnected and tampered with".

AAP spokesperson Saurabh Bharadwaj refused to comment on the allegations, saying that the matter is still in court.

The alleged assault on the chief secretary in February had triggered a bitter tussle between the Delhi government and its bureaucracy.
