Imran Hussain, another AAP leader also claimed that they were assaulted by the mob inside the Secretariat complex, to which complaints were registered by the MLAs with Indraprastha and Daryaganj Police stations respectively.

The administration in Delhi slipped into an unprecedented crisis on Monday after the chief secretary claimed that AAP MLAs manhandled him in the presence of Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal during a midnight meeting.

The demonstrators assembled near Chandagi Ram Akhada and proceeded towards the CM's residence.
