The leads coming from the office of Chief Electoral Officer Vijay Dev suggest that action might be taken against AAP for their attack on BJP office.

The Election Commission (EC) has sent back the case to the CEO of Delhi, who would now take a final call on AAP’s fate before the elections.

After the Model Code of Conduct was implemented in the country in the wake of the upcoming Lok Sabha elections, AAP chief Kejriwal had visited Gujarat where he was arrested.

To show discontent over his arrest in Gujarat, AAP supporters protested violently at the BJP office in Delhi, injuring several saffron party activists and damaging property in the process.

Delhi Police had filed a case against five prominent AAP leaders and several activists in the Parliament Street police station.

The BJP had demanded Election Commission to cancel the registration of AAP after filing a formal complaint to the election body.

The inquest in this matter was handed over to District Magistrate Ameya Abyankar, who had then sent his report to the Election Commission in a sealed envelope.

According to sources, the District Magistrate has found Arvind Kejriwal-led AAP guilty in this matter. Delhi Chief Electoral Officer Vijay Dev had then not taken action on this matter and sent it to the Election Commission for action.
