New Delhi: Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Sunday accused the Delhi Police of illegaly detaining and assaulting its workers who were coming from Punjab and trying to enter the national capital.

The AAP members flocked to Delhi Sunday morning owing to the protest held by the top leadership including Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann along with Atishi, Sanjay Singh, Raghav Chadha.

Punjab Health Minister Balbir Singh posted on Twitter that the police launched lathi-charge on unarmed public and said, “Brutal assault by Modi regime to crush Arvind Kejriwal.”

The minister tweeted, “MLAs, ministers, volunteers who were peacefully travelling to Delhi were stopped, illegally detained, followed by brutal lathi charge on unarmed peaceful people. We had to do CPR and rush the injured to hospital to save lives.”

Meanwhile in Delhi, the police detained several AAP supporters from the Kashmiri Gate where the leaders were holding protest against the probe agency to summon CM Kejriwal.
