Delhi Court Grants Bail To Kejriwal, Sisodia In Chief Secretary Assault Case

Delhi’s Patiala House court on October 25, 2018, has granted bail to Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and his deputy Manish Sisodia in the case of alleged assault on Delhi chief secretary Anshu Prakash.

Apart from Kejriwal and Sisodia, the court also granted bail to AAP MLAs - Nitin Tyagi, Rituraj Govind, Sanjeev Jha, Ajay Dutt, Rajesh Rishi, Rajesh Gupta, Madan Lal, Parveen Kumar and Dinesh Mohania.

All the accused were granted bail on a personal bond of Rs. 50,000, except MLAs Amanatullah Khan and Prakash Jarwal, who were previously granted bail by Delhi High Court.

The Delhi Chief Secretary in February this year had alleged that he was beaten up by AAP MLAs in the presence of Kejriwal at latter’s residence on February 19, 2018.

Following the allegations, the police on August 13, 2018, had booked Kejriwal and Sisodia for criminal conspiracy u/s 120B of the Indian Penal Code, 1860, and AAP MLAs Prakash Jarwar and Amanatullah Khan u/s 186 of the Indian Penal Code, 1860, for obstructing a public servant from performing his duty.

Moreover, Sections 323, 332, 342, 353, 504, 506(ii), 109, 114, 149, 34 and 36 of the Indian Penal Code, 1860, were also attracted in the 1300-page charge sheet filed by the police.

On September 18, 2018, all 13 accused were summoned to appear before the court on October 25, 2018.

Further, Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Samar Vishal while granting bail has ordered AAP chief Kejriwal and Sisodia to seek permission of the court before leaving the national capital.

The matter has been listed for further hearing on December 7, 2018.
