This was after AAP leaders tweeted a picture in which Delhi BJP president Manoj Tiwari and Mishra were seen in one frame. More drama erupted over the the assailant's affiliation with both AAP and BJP terming him an activist of the rival party.

Bhardwaj was a chartered accountant by profession and had quit his job to work as a party volunteer, said a senior police officer after his interrogation. Earlier in the day, Kapil Mishra had asserted that he was going to record his statement with the Anti-corruption Bureau (ACB) again adding that he wants Arvind Kejriwal to come out to clean.

Mishra, who began his hunger strike Wednesday morning at his residence demanding that AAP government release details of funds of foreign travels of five of its leaders, alleged he has been receiving "death threats from global numbers".

Mishra, on the third day of his "indefinite fast", penned another letter to Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, alleging that the attacker Ankit Bhardwaj was attached with the mohalla clinics project under Health Minister Satyendar Jain. The police must increase Kapil Mishra's security.

Sacked last week as minister and suspended by AAP days later, Mr Mishra has also alleged that he witnessed Mr Kejriwal taking two crore in bribe money from Stayendar Jain and that Mr Jain helped the Chief Minister's brother in law Surendra Kumar Bansal with a 50-crore deal. His photos are there with BJP's Pawan Sharma, Satish Upadhyay.

Mishra also accused the AAP of planning attacks on him and said: "When I was attacked (on Wednesday evening), Sanjay Singh held a press conference instantly and said that the attacker was a Bharatiya Janta Party worker". "Government officials are sending information to me", Mishra claimed. Mishra also questioned Kejriwal's silence on their foreign trips, saying "your (Kejriwal) silence is saying a lot".
