Arvind Kejriwal was attacked with chilli powder at the Delhi secretariat.
A man threw chilli powder at Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal outside his office in the Delhi secretariat on Tuesday. The man, identified as Anil Kumar, has been taken into custody, officials said.
Arvind Kejriwal was leaving for lunch when the attack took place outside the chief minister's chamber on the third floor.
The man, identified as Anil Kumar, was caught after the attack.
Calling it a dangerous attack, Mr Kejriwal's Aam Aadmi Party tweeted: "Serious security lapses from Delhi Police. Even the Chief Minister is not safe in Delhi."
AAP spokesperson Raghav Chadha said he has behind the the Chief Minister when the attack took place.
While today just the CM's glasses fell to the floor and broke, an unacceptable security lapse nonetheless.
Imagine if attacker were to be wielding a more dangerous weapon. Who were to have prevented a tragedy from occurring?
