      Delhi Chief Secretary Row : Arvind Kejriwal's advisor VK Jain resigns | Oneindia News

      Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's advisor VK Jain has reportedly resigned from his post on Friday. This comes a day after Jain gave contradictory statements about the alleged attack on Delhi Chief Secretary Anshu Prakash by AAP legislators.

      Contradicting his earlier stand, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's advisor, VK Jain said he witnessed the assault on Delhi on Chief Secretary Anshu Prakash on February 19 during a meeting in Kejriwal's residence and saw Prakash's "spectacles fall off".

      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.

      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.

      Jain's testimony has been cited by the police as a new ground to seek custodial interrogation of Amanatullah Khan and Prakash Jarwal, the two lawmakers arrested earlier for the assault.

      The chief secretary has alleged in his complaint that he was sitting on a sofa flanked by Khan and another AAP MLA during the meeting.

      "Khan and the other MLA, without provocation from my side started hitting and assaulting me with blows on my head and temple," he alleged in his complaint.
