Breaking: Man throws ‘Chilli powder’ at Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal

In yet another case of the breach in security, a man threw chilli powder at Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal inside the Delhi Secretariat on Tuesday, according to the officials. Nobody saw this coming. Finally, the man, by the name of Anil Kumar has been detained by the cops.

The culprit sneaked into Secretariat around 1 pm and was casually waiting in a room close to the CM’s office. Just as when the Chief Minister left his office, he threw chilli powder at him. The unexpected attack happened outside the CM’s chamber right on the third floor while he was leaving for lunch time.

Regarding this attack, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) did a press conference. AAP called it a ‘ferocious attack’ and further reported it as a ‘serious security lapse’ from Delhi police personnel. “Even the CM is not safe in Delhi. The man crossed all security barriers and even scanners did not detect the chilli powder.”

“How can a random person walk into the secretariat and attack the chief minister. Kejriwal has faced many such attacks on a regular basis. This is a serious security lapse,” said AAP MLA Saurabh Bharadwaj in a press conference.

“The message from the central government and the Delhi Police is clear- Anyone can attack the Delhi CM, The attackers will be protected by police and no action will be taken,” said Saurabh Bharadwaj.
