The man, Anil Kumar, has been detained by Delhi Police. The assault attacked the secretariat about 1pm and was staying in a room near the office of the CM. As soon as Kejriwal left his office, the assault attacked the power of him.
The assault was held outside the prime minister's chamber on the third floor when he was leaving for lunch.
Kumar was targeting the eyes of the prime minister, officials said. Kejriwal's glasses broke but it seemed that his eyes had eliminated any damage, they added.
Kumar, whose recovery card has been recovering, has brought the chilli powder to the secretariat in khaini packages, or tobacco markers, they said.
After throwing red pepper powder on Kejriwal, Kumar was threatened to shoot after he came out of the prison, officially reported.
AAP called a dangerous assault & # 39; and described as a serious security order on behalf of Delhi Police. "Even the CM is not safe in Delhi. The man crossed all the safety barriers and even scanners that did not find the chilli powder."

He said that such actions were "acceptable" and that the person arrested for attacking the Plaid Aammi adviser (AAP) should be questioned thoroughly.
