Delhi chief secretary vs AAP: Medical report says Anshu Prakash was assaulted; confirms swelling on face

A day after Delhi chief secretary Anshu Prakash alleged that he was beaten up by Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) legislators, the medical report confirmed that Prakash was a victim of physical assault, ANI reported.

There were cut marks and swelling on Prakash's face, and it can be confirmed that he was injured in a scuffle, the report said.

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.

Meanwhile, AAP legislator Prakash Jarwal has been detained by the police. Jarwal was picked up from his house at Deoli and detained. There is a possibility he will be arrested later, sources said.
