The two new statements contradict Jain’s earlier stand. In a statement to police on Wednesday he had said he was present at the February 19 meeting but denied witnessing the assault and said he was in the “washroom” for a few minutes.

Additional Public Prosecutor Atul Srivastava Thursday told Metropolitan Magistrate Shefali Barnala Tandon that Jain’s statement was recorded before police. “In his statement under Section 161 of the CrPC, Jain said he left home at around 11.30 pm from Maharani Bagh and reached the CM’s residence at midnight.”

According to the prosecutor, Jain, in the statement, admitted that he saw Prakash being assaulted after exiting the washroom. “... He saw two MLAs had surrounded the Chief Secretary and were assaulting him and that is when his spectacles fell off,” Srivastava told the court.

Defence counsel for the two AAP MLAs, BS Joon pointed out the contradictions in Jain’s statements while arguing for bail. During the hearing the prosecution filed a fresh application seeking police custody of the two MLAs while opposing bail.

Deoli MLA Prakash Jarwal and Okhla MLA Amanatullah Khan were sent to judicial custody on Wednesday.

They were asking why are you not working. Following this incident, his spectacles fell.”

Police sources said Jain went to the Civil Lines police station at 10 am on Thursday to record his statements. A retired 1984-batch DANICS and 2001 batch IAS officer, Jain (60 was appointed as advisor cum consultant to Chief Minister Kejriwal in September 2017.
