  • Arvind-Kejriwal

AAP leader Arvind Kejriwal was Tuesday punched on the face by a man while he was campaigning here.

The attack, which took place in Sultanpuri, left Kejriwal with a swollen eye. Kejriwal's suporters immediately thrashed the attacker, an autorickshaw driver wearing an AAP cap. He was later detained by police.

The AAP leader directed his anger at BJP after the attack. "I do not understand why do some people resort to violence for becoming the Prime Minister. If you think by attacking us, we will keep quite then you are wrong. We will fight this battle till the last breath," he said. The AAP leader headed for Rajghat after the incident.

He tweeted about the incident:

This is the third violent attacks on the AAP chief in last ten days. Earlier, on March 28, an unidentified man attempted to attack Arvind Kejriwal at his rally in Bhiwani, Haryana. This was followed by another in Delhi itself on April 4, when Kejriwal slapped during roadshow in the city.
