A person attacked Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal with chilly powder in Delhi Secretariat. The accused, identified as Anil Kumar, has been taken into study. After his detention, Kumar said that he had announced an attack on Kejriwal on his Facebook account in advance.

The attack took place outside Kejriwal’s chamber on the third floor when he was leaving for lunch.

The Aam Aadmi Party said that there are serious security lapses from Delhi Police. “Dangerous attack on Delhi CM @ArvindKejriwal. Serious security lapses from Delhi Police. Even the Chief Minister is not safe in Delhi,” AAP said on its official twitter handle.
