New Delhi: Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) chief Arvind Kejriwal was on Friday attacked by an unidentified person during a roadshow in Dakshinpuri area of South Delhi. The former Delhi chief minister blamed the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) for the assault.

When Kejriwal was shaking hands with his supporters, the person punched Kejriwal on his back and even tried to slap him. Later the man was thrashed by AAP workers and handed over to police.

“Some people are ready to go to any extent to become Prime Minister. Let them do whatever they are doing. Our religion teaches us non-violence. If we raise our hands, this movement will come to an end," Kejriwal said.

Appealing for calm, Kejriwal asked his supporters not to indulge in any violence. Kejriwal has been attacked a number of times in the past. On 28 March, he was attacked by a man claiming to be a supporter of anti-corruption crusader Anna Hazare during an election rally in Haryana.
