The report comes a day after the Aam Aadmi Party denied assaulting Prakash. A report on ABP Live quoted party leader Sanjay Singh as addressing a press conference, where he said, "Yes, an argument broke out. But, the statement that an assault took place is false." Meanwhile, the Delhi High Court refused to entertain a plea for judicial intervention. "The police is looking into the alleged assault on bureaucrat by AAP MLAs... will wait for the final outcome," the high court said.
