Now Kejriwal minister beaten in Secretariat

New Delhi, Feb 21 Delhi Environment Minister Imran Hussain met Lt. Governor Anil Baijal on Wednesday, a day after he was allegedly manhandled by a crowd at the Secretariat here.

An FIR was registered after the minister complained of manhandling on Tuesday afternoon outside the lift door at the Delhi Secretariat while his Assistant Personal Secretary was beaten up. The incident was captured on mobile phones and its video clips shared widely on social media.

The crowd reportedly consisted of Delhi government employees protesting against an alleged assault on Chief Secretary Anshu Prakash by two Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MLAs at Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's residence on Monday night.

AAP leader Ashish Khetan alleged that he too was manhandled by the same crowd shouting "BJP zindabad" and "maaro maaro", and claimed that the Delhi Police did not try to intervene.

Khetan said the Secretariat was supposed to be a "high-security zone" and alleged that the Delhi Police did not do anything when the mob tried to attack him and later Hussain.

Khetan and Hussain have since filed separate police complaints regarding the assaults. On Tuesday, police filed an FIR on Hussain's complaint.
