Delhi HC asks Assembly panel not to insist on CS appearance

I am not going on the personality of the person who was assaulted.

A Delhi court on Thursday further extended the judicial remand of two AAP MLAs in connection with the the Delhi Chief Secretary assault case. "How should I be satisfied that no such incident would take place in future?" "Is it not a ground to reject the bail plea?" the court said when it was informed by the bureaucrat's counsel that he has been served with a notice by the Privileges Committee of the Delhi Assembly asking him to appear before it with regard to a complaint made against him.

Justice Shakdher pointed out that the notice to the chief secretary came soon after the committee assured the HC on March 5 that it won't proceed in the matter till further orders.

The police, in its status report filed through advocate Sanjay Lau, said that as per the medical report of the senior bureaucrat, his injuries were of simple nature but two of the provisions invoked on Jarwal were non-bailable.

"After giving a statement on March 5, the complainant (Q&R Committee) immediately issued notice to the chief secretary asking him to appear before it on Thursday". The court reserved its order on Jarwal's application and also asked the police to file a status report by March 12 on the bail plea of Amanatullah Khan, the other AAP legislator accused of assaulting Prakash.

On 22 February, both were sent to jail by the court on 14 day-judicial custody in the "highly sensitive" case.

On Wednesday the chief secretary moved an intervention application in the bail application of Khan. A decision on their bail pleas is yet to be pronounced.

A magisterial court had earlier denied bail to both of them, saying the matter can not be treated in "a casual and routine manner" while dubbing them as "history-sheeters".
