Kapil Mishra reaches CBI office to hand over evidence against AAP leaders including Arvind Kejriwal

But hours later another Ankit Bhardwaj of the Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BYJM) came at BJP's Delhi office with party leaders stating that he was their office-bearer and they had no links with the man in police custody.

Ankit Bhardwaj, the man who allegedly attacked sacked AAP minister Kapil Mishra on Wednesday, is a chartered accountant who sidelined his work after getting inspired by Arvind Kejriwal's politics, said a senior police officer after interrogating him. Mr Mishra's supporters beat up the man and handed him over to the police.

The attacker identified as Ankit Bhardwaj reached the site when Mishra was lying on the bed and surrounded by media persons and his supporters. "Government officials are sending information to me", Mishra claimed.

Mishra on Wednesday began his indefinite hunger strike, demanding details of foreign tours undertaken by five AAP leaders.

On being asked whether the party has diverged from its original principles, Mishra told reporters that it isn't the party but four or five members who have forgotten their principles, in an veiled reference to Kejriwal and Manish Sisodia. The police must increase Kapil Mishra's security.

Mishra, who was removed as a minister and expelled from the party, shot off a letter to Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, asking how the leaders had made these trips despite the party's "fund crisis".

Sacked Delhi Water Minister Kapil Mishra on Thursday said he had got his statement recorded with the Anti-Corruption Branch in the alleged Rs 400 crore water tanker scam.

"It is a conspiracy of BJP to tarnish AAP's image and destabilise the party", Singh said, adding that his party "condemns" the attack.

"Soon, it was revealed that he was not a BJP worker but a coordinator of Jain's Mohalla Clinic and an AAP worker", Mishra said.

He had on Tuesday filed a graft complaint with the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) against Kejriwal, his relatives and other AAP leaders.
