The Indian Administrative Service (IAS) officers on Monday protested against the alleged assault of Delhi Chief Secretary Anshu Prakash by Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MLAs by wearing black bands and along demanded a written apology from Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.

Addressing an IAS Joint Forum in Delhi, Pooja Joshi stated, "We want a written apology from the Chief Minister. Instead of apologising for the incident the CM and the Deputy CM are in denial. This shows they are part of the conspiracy."

Delhi Police has earlier raided Arvind Kejriwal's residence and retrieved the CCTV footage but later claimed that it has been tampered with and the timings are also different. "This shows they (Kejriwal and Sisodia) are part of the conspiracy," Pooja noted.

Additional Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP) Harendra Singh told the court hearing the case on Monday that the police will be sending the recorded footage to the Forensic Science Laboratory (FSL) for examination. 

"The meeting was not held in the camp office but in drawing room of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's residence," he claimed. Delhi Police has examined a hard disk and a total of 21 CCTV cameras, seven of which they noted were not working during the incident.

Delhi's Chief Secretary Anshu Prakash on February 20 claimed that two AAP MLAs Amanatullah Khan and Prakash Jarwal have beaten him up at CM Kejriwal's residence where he was called for an emergency meeting. Lieutenant Governor of Delhi Anil Baijal has expressed his displeasure in the case earlier.
