Mishra was suspended from the AAP after his startling allegation that he witnessed Kejriwal accept Rs. 2 crore in a suspicious transaction.

AAP leader Sanjay Singh said that before levelling such baseless charges against Kejriwal and his relative, Mishra should have shown some sensitivity.

On Monday, Mishra filed a complaint with the ACB regarding what is known as the water tanker scam, saying Kejriwal delayed action in the case.

The attacker, who has been identified as Ankit Bhardwaj, allegedly ran over to Mr. Mishra and hit him on his neck before he was pulled aside by Mishra's supporters.

"I have registered three complaints", Mishra told The Times of India.

Hitting out at Mishra over his allegations of corruption against Kejriwal, Singh claimed Mishra had himself written a letter to the ACB in September previous year, saying that the anti-graft body was trying to implicate the chief minister in the water tanker scam under pressure even when his name was not mentioned in the evidence.

70th Cannes Film Festival opens amid heavy security
But while Cannes maintained its status as an global melting pot, definitions of what qualifies as cinema continued to stir debate. A new carpet is laid before each official screening of a film in competition, meaning 180 metres of carpet are used each day.

The leader of India's anti-corruption Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), Arvind Kejriwal, has rejected a colleague's allegation that he took bribes.

Summary: Interestingly, Mishra had been accusing BJP of shielding Dikshit till sometime back. On Thursday, several Aam Aadmi Party leaders had tweeted a picture in which Delhi Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president Manoj Tiwari and Mishra were seen in one frame.

Axed Delhi minister Kapil Mishra, whose hunger strike entered day three today, has been advised hospitalisation by a team of doctors who examined him.

He said that Ankit Bharadwaj has pictures with several BJP leaders like its former Delhi chief Satish Upadhyay and Union Minister Vijay Sampla.

Referring to sacked Delhi Water Minister Kapil Mishra's allegations against Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi on Monday said "truth has a habit of coming out".

He also dared Kejriwal to fight an election against him from a seat of his choice. Mishra was on a hunger strike demanding that AAP should disclose the details of the funds used on the foreign trip by its leaders.
