New Delhi, April 4: Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Arvind Kejriwal was attacked by an identified person in Dakshinpuri area of the national capital while he was busy in a roadshow. Kejriwal was reportedly slapped and punched twice in his neck before the AAP supporters present on the occasion thrashed the attacker and handed him over to the police.

Kejriwal was campaigning for Devender Sehrawat, his party's Lok Sabha poll candidate from South Delhi. Sehrawat said it was a political conspiracy against the AAP.

Kejriwal said some people would do anything to become the prime minister

Kejriwal later told his supporters to maintain calm and not to respond angrily. "Some people would do anything to become the prime minister of the country, let them do it. We won't retaliate," Kejriwal said, adding that the road show would go on. He also said that he did not like that his attacker was thrashed by his party supporters.

A number of AAP leaders, including Kejriwal, have been targetted on various occasions. However, the past attacks have been mostly carried out with ink and eggs barring an incident in Haryana where Kejriwal was also targetted physically. This is also the fourth attack on Kejriwal in last one month. He was also attacked with ink and eggs during his rally in Varanasi last month.

The identity of the attacker was not known, the latest reports said.
