A senior police officer said that a notice has been sent to Kejriwal and he will be examined on May 18 at 11 am. However, he requested a change in time pertaining to prior commitments.

Police on Wednesday sent him a notice to join the investigation on Friday at 11 am. There is also a possibility that the police may also ask Kejriwal's deputy Manish Sisodia to join the investigation after the chief minister.

Harendra Singh, Additional DCP (North) s, replied, "We are not going to allow Mr. Kejriwal to video record the questioning".

"If you have any objection, then I would like to request you to kindly make arrangements at your end to record the proceedings", Mr Kejriwal stated. "Modi ji is misusing the police to bother the chief minister but people stand by Kejriwal". Two MLAs Amantullah Khan and Prakash Jarwal were arrested in the case and were later granted bail.

Kejriwal, his former advisor and Deputy Chief Minister were also present there.

On February 20, the Delhi Police had filed an FIR against AAP MLA Amanatullah and others, on a complaint by the CS after he was allegedly manhandled during a midnight meeting at Chief Minister's residence, a day before.

BJP legislator and Leader of Opposition in the Delhi Assembly, Vijender Gupta, accused Kejriwal of conspiring the assault on Prakash at his official residence. The forensic report on the hard disk is still awaited.

Addressing a press conference, Delhi's AAP chief spokesperson Saurabh Bharadwaj showed a letter dated 9 May purportedly written to the Delhi Police commissioner by the Lieutenant Governor's office, wherein special secretary RN Sharma wrote that the L-G wanted a report on the "lacklustre" police investigations.
