- More than a dozen policemen arrived at Arvind Kejriwal's house
- He was questioned over alleged assault on top bureaucrat at his home
- Kejriwal had agreed to be questioned but requested session be recorded
Arvind Kejriwal may again be questioned and if needed Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia may also be questioned as the chief minister did not give "satisfactory answers", Additional Deputy Commissioner of Police Harendra Singh told reporters after the questioning.
A police officer, present during the questioning, told news agency IANS that Arvind Kejriwal was asked over a hundred questions. The police wanted to know about the sequence of events that took place on February 19 and whether the assault was pre-planned.
The entire questioning was recorded on video, but as per law, a copy of it could not be given to the chief minister, police said, adding two advocates were present with Mr Kejriwal during his questioning at his house on Flagstaff Road in north Delhi.
Mr Kejriwal, meanwhile, hit out at the centre after the questioning, and said the BJP was behind the move. He also alleged that the cases against Aam Aadmi Party were "fake and politically motivated".
"For the first time in the history of India, a Chief Minister was questioned for fake cases and a raid was conducted by police. There is only one reason behind it -- to disturb us and to defame us," Arvind Kejriwal said in a statement.
Earlier, in a letter addressed to the Station House Officer of Civil Lines Police Station, the chief minister said he would be available at 5 pm today at his camp office. The police had sent him a notice to join the investigation at 11 am.
But Mr Kejriwal requested that the proceedings be recorded on video.
He wrote to the police that if they have issues with him video recording the proceedings, they can make arrangements and provide him the video after the questioning is over, the police said.
Mr Prakash was allegedly assaulted during a meeting at Mr Kejriwal's official residence on February 19.
Mr Kejriwal, his former advisor VK Jain and Deputy Chief Minister Sisodia were also present there.
On February 23, a police team had examined the CCTV system installed at the chief minister's residence in the Civil Lines area and seized the hard disk. The forensic report on the hard disk is still awaited.
The controversy had triggered a bitter tussle between the Delhi government and its bureaucracy.
