Attack on Arvind Kejriwal in Ludhiana


A day after the attack on the cavalcade of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) convener Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal, a video uploaded by the party’s state organisational head Durgesh Pathak showed a blue-turbaned man breaking the windshield of the Toyota Innova car in which Kejriwal was sitting in the front seat. Despite this, the Ludhiana rural police have claimed that only one stone thrown by an unidentified person hit the windshield.
The video appears to have been taken from inside the police escort vehicle just in front of Kejriwal’s car. Yet, the police claimed to have scanned the CCTV cameras installed at the banquet that Kejriwal had left just before the attack.

The police have recorded the statements of eyewitnesses and heads of organisations leading the protest. The Danga Peerit Welfare Society and Hindu organisations, who were protesting with black flags, claimed that the attackers were not from their groups.
Police said as there were hundreds of protestors from various groups, it was difficult to identify the attackers.
