Barely a week after he was attacked with ink at a rally in Varanasi, Aam Aadmi Party's Chief Arvind Kejriwal was on Friday slapped by an unidentified man during a rally in Dakshinpuri in South Delhi.There are, however, conflicting reports over what really happened. Some media reports state that Kejriwal was slapped on the face, while others say he was punched twice in the neck.Kejriwal, however, did not suffer any major injuries and was then escorted by Delhi Police. Speaking to his supporters, Kejriwal appealed that they should not resort to violence as it wasn't part of their ideology and cast a veiled attack on BJP's PM candidate Narendra Modi."Let them attack us but we should not retaliate... some people will do anything to become Prime Minister."AAP supporters attacked the assaulter who was later detained by the Delhi Police. Aaj Tak reports that the attacker had been paid Rs 25,000 for the attack but the Delhi Police has refused to comment, saying they will question him before making a statement. AAP has not yet filed a complaint. More details are awaited.
