The sources confirmed TOI that Jarwal was sitting on the left side of the chief secretary whereas MLA Amanatullah Khan was on the other side.

The Delhi Police had, on Tuesday, lodged an FIR on a complaint by the chief secretary under relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) pertaining to wrongful restraint, criminal intimidation, causing hurt, criminal conspiracy, insult and obstructing a public servant from discharging his duty.

Meanwhile, IAS Associations across the country extended their support to the Delhi Chief Secretary and demanded exemplary action against the perpetrators.

Delhi CM office strongly denies allegations by the Chief Secretary.

On Tuesday night, Delhi Police had registered a First Information Report (FIR) following a written complaint from Prakash against Khan and others, alleging assault.

Prakash in a statement requested the Delhi police to take action as per law. MHA has sought a report on the incident from the Lieutenant Governor of Delhi. "With difficulty, I was able to leave the room and get into my official auto and leave the CM's residence", he said. Instead of addressing his party's ongoing involvement in Prakash's attack and his party members' arrest, AAP supremo Arvind Kejriwal has refused to shed light on the controversial incident.

He said in his police complaint that he was also told he would be implicated in "false cases including under the SC/ST Act".

"The Delhi secretariat is a high-security zone and no one can enter without clearance and reference. We had to re-enter from the back entrance and a riot-like situation prevailed until an assistant commissioner of police arrived", said Sharma.

Delhi's Environmental Minister Imran Hussain said he was mobbed by over a hundred people in a bid to prevent him from taking the elevator to his 6th floor office at the secretariat. Some of those who may have pushed him around may have been government employees. This fortuity halted the Delhi government machinery on Tuesday.

"The Chief Minister directed me to answer the MLAs and explain the reasons for the delay in the release of the TV campaign".

The Telangana State IAS Officers' Association also condemned the alleged "assault".

He alleged the Kejriwal government has "failed on all fronts in the last three years".
