The Delhi High Court today granted bail to AAP MLA Prakash Jarwal in the Chief Secretary Anshu Prakash assault case with a warning that any such illegal activity in future would lead to cancellation of his bail.
The judge also noted that the case was a reflection of “trust deficit to the hilt” between the members of the Delhi Assembly and the bureaucrats and suggested that the Delhi Government should videograph the meetings between legislators and bureaucrats to see that no unforeseen incident occurs in future and maintain transparency.
Justice Mukta Gupta made it clear that if Jarwal himself or through someone else intimidated, harassed or obstructed the lawful activities of Anshu Prakash, the Delhi Police and the chief secretary would be entitled to seek cancellation of his bail.
The court also asked him not to tamper with evidence or intimidate or approach the witnesses in any manner.
Jarwal was arrested on the 20th of last month for allegedly assaulting the Chief Secretary during a meeting at Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s residence on the midnight of 19th.
