Delhi BJP chief Manoj Tiwari argues with the police during a scuffle with Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) workers at the inauguration of the Signature Bridge over Yamuna river, in New Delhi on 4 November, 2018.

Delhi BJP President Manoj Tiwari has lodged a complaint against Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and AAP's Okhla MLA Amanatullah Khan over the alleged attack during the inauguration of the Signature Bridge on Sunday, 4 November.

Tiwari made a written complaint to the Deputy Commissioner of Police, Northeast Delhi, on Monday, 5 November, against the two and others.

He has accused Khan of pushing and manhandling him during the inauguration by Kejriwal in the Wazirabad area on Sunday, and described the episode as "unfortunate" as he was an invitee of the Delhi government.

In his complaint, he said: "Amanatullah Khan, under the instructions of Arvind Kejriwal, manhandled and physically assaulted me in presence of my supporters..."

"... with the intention of killing me and/or causing grievous injury, he came towards me, and pushed me suddenly and forcefully from a certain height... If someone falls from such a place, then he will suffer grievous injury or die."

Some media reports had said that Tiwari had manhandled a policeman, which he denied.

Earlier in the day, AAP Rajya Sabha member Sanjay Singh wrote to Commissioner of Police Amulya Patnaik, saying: "There is a video and pictorial evidence of Tiwari having held DCP Northeast by his collar in full public view... ”

"Why is Delhi Police silent even after 48 hours of this serious crime having been committed against its own official?" he questioned.

He also asked if any action had been taken against Tiwari so far.

Singh said he will raise this issue in Parliament during the forthcoming Winter Session.
