NEW DELHI: The IRS association of the Income Tax Department today sought a "quick and decisive" action against the perpetrators of the alleged assault on Delhi's Chief Secretary Anshu Prakash.

The all-India association of the Indian Revenue Service (I-T) said it was "shocking that such an incident was stated to have occurred at the official residence of the Delhi Chief Minister and carried out by sitting MLAs".

The IRS association, in a statement, expressed anguish on the alleged assault.

"It is a matter of deep concern that if such an episode can happen with such a senior officer in the presence of the CM, then what can be the fate of an ordinary government servant or citizen," general secretary of the association Jayant Misra said in the statement.

He said the association demanded "a through inquiry into the entire incident and quick and decisive action against all the perpetrators and conspirators.

" Prakash was allegedly manhandled by a few AAP MLAs at Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's residence, which the Delhi bureaucrats had termed a "pre-planned and pre-meditated" attack.

However, a senior official of the chief minister's office said the allegation of assault was "bizarre and baseless.
