NEW DELHI:  A 19-year-old youth was arrested for pelting a stone at AAP MLA Alka Lamba during her anti-drug campaign in north Delhi’s Kashmere Gate area on Sunday morning. The MLA sustained a “simple blunt injury” on her head.

The accused, identified as Jatin, works at a  sweet shop which AAP leader Ashutosh alleged was owned by BJP legislator Om Prakash Sharma.

The BJP has rejected the charge.

“At the time of the attack Alka was standing outside Shiv Mishthan Bhandar, where Jatin works,” DCP Madhur Verma said. “The MLA’s medical reported suggested that she had received a simple blunt injury on her head. We have arrested the accused following her complaint,” Verma said. 

In her complaint to police, Alka said Jatin had pelted a stone when she opposed the encroachment made by some shopkeepers in the area.

Alka started her anti-drug drive at 5 am from Yamuna Bazar. The MLA alleged the incident was part of a conspiracy against her campaign.
