A youth claiming to be an AAP worker attacked sacked Delhi minister Kapil Mishra during his hunger strike on Wednesday.
She said Kejriwal had pursued her to convince Mishra to join politics despite the latter not being interested. Police officials and his aides caught hold of him.
In his complaint, Mishra had said that the man had arrived around 30 minutes before the incident happened.More news: Kulbhushan Jadhav case: Five reasons why ICJ ordered Pakistan to stop execution
In the letter, Mishra claimed that the way AAP leaders and volunteers were quick to brand Bhardwaj as a BJP worker aroused suspicion that the entire episode was scripted "like the past attacks on you (Kejriwal)". Even the police has said the same. "Nobody has sent me here, I have come on my own". But hours later another Ankit Bhardwaj of the Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BYJM) came at BJP's Delhi office with party leaders stating that he was their office-bearer and they had no links with the man in police custody.
A case has been registered for voluntarily causing hurt and criminal intimidation and police are trying to find out more details about Bhardwaj.
He added that Mishra, who is on a hunger strike in his home in Civil Lines, may also suffer from heat exhaustion, not just because of the hot days but also because he is surrounded by many people radiating body heat.More news: Tottenham Hotspur fans confident Janssen will be firing next season
He is now in the police custody and kept at Civil Lines Police Station.
Mishra is demanding that AAP leaders Sanjay Singh, Ashish Khetan, Satyendar Jain, Raghav Chadha and Durgesh Pathak disclose details and source of their funding for their foreign trips and questioned as to why these leaders have not put this information in the public domain as yet.
Mishra approached the ACB on Monday and claimed to have given evidence in support of his allegations that two persons close to Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal tried to influence the scam probe.More news: WikiLeaks awaits UK decision on Assange's status
He claimed that the details of the foreign trips by AAP leaders would "reveal a lot" about alleged corruption by them.
