But digging their heels in, the officers, including those from IAS and DANICS, said they will continue to communicate with ministers only in writing until Kejriwal and his deputy Manish Sisodia give a public apology. Today, the defence counsel while arguing for the bail of the accused stated that police must prove that tampering has been done. The two legislators have been charged under the Indian Penal Code for voluntarily causing hurt to deter public servant from his duty (Section 332), assault or criminal force to deter public servant from discharge of his duty (Section 353) and criminal conspiracy (Section 120B) for the purported attack on Prakash.

Reacting to officers' resolution, the Delhi Government said attitude of its officials was not "correct" and they should show a positive response to its "efforts" in ending the crisis arising out of the alleged assault.

In a probe on the alleged assault of Delhi Chief Secretary Anshu Prakash by two AAP MLAs, the Delhi Police have found discrepancies in CCTV footage obtained from Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal's home where the assault took place. They wore black bands and demanded a written apology from Kejriwal for the behaviour of his MLAs and aides. "With the file-tracking plan, we want to put every noting and detail of each file pending at each stage on the website so that people can know which officer or which political functionary held up the file for how many days", a government official said.

"Instead of apologising and admitting their mistake of assault on the Chief Secretary at midnight, CM and Dy CM are in denial mode".
