According to reports, the attacker touched Kejriwal's feet and apologised for the attack.

“Going to meet Lali-the person who attacked Arvind yesterday,” Kejriwal’s close aide and party leader Manish Sisodia tweeted early in the day.

This was the second attack on Kejriwal in the past four days in Delhi. Kejriwal was earlier on Friday slapped twice by 19-year-old Abdul Wahid during a road show at Dakshinpuri area in South Delhi.

The attacker, a resident of Aman Vihar, had accused Kejriwal of betraying the auto-rickshaw driver by not fulfilling the promises made to them.

On March 28, he was attacked by a man, who claimed to be a supporter of Anna Hazare, during his election rally in Haryana.

In Varanasi last week, protesters threw ink on Kejriwal and a number of other party leaders during a roadshow.
