The incident had triggered a bitter tussle between the Delhi government and its bureaucracy.

"A notice has been sent to Kejriwal and he will be examined on May 18 at 11 am. He will be questioned by the police on Friday in connection with the alleged assault on chief secretary Anshu Prakash in February," PTI quoted police as saying.

Reacting to this, the AAP lashed out, suggesting police are trying to link the alleged assault to the chief minister. Kejriwal along with his former advisor V K Jain and Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia were also present there.
