The Delhi Police has filed chargesheet in Patiala court against Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal in Chief Secretary Anshu Prakash assault case. Alongside Delhi CM, Manish Sisodia and other 11 AAP MLAs have been named in the chargesheet. 

Out of 11, charges of criminal conspiracy has been filed against Kejriwal, Sisodia and 9 others. 2 APP MLAs have been accused of beating up the Chief Secretary. Delhi Police has filed a chargesheet of 1533 pages/ 

The final report was filed before Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Samar Vishal who put up the matter for consideration on August 25. The Delhi Police had on May 18 questioned Kejriwal for over three hours in connection with the alleged assault on Prakash.

Chief secretary prakesh was allegedly attacked during a meeting at Kejriwal's official residence on February 19. The police said Kejriwal was present when the attack happened. Police have questioned Kejriwal, Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia and 11 AAP lawmakers present at the meeting. Kejriwal's former advisor V K Jain was also present there.

Two AAP lawmakers - Amantullah Khan and Prakash Jarwal - were arrested in the case; Jain was questioned by the police.

The alleged attack on Prakash had triggered a bitter tussle between the Delhi government and its bureaucrats. The government had accused the IAS officers, who had protested the alleged attack on Prakash, of boycotting meetings with Delhi ministers. The IAS officers have denied the accusation. It lead to a massive stand-off with Kejriwal camping in LG's house for nine days. 

The bitter acrimony between babus and AAP legislators continue so far and this chargesheet is only likely to increase the divide
