New Delhi, March 13: An advisor, VK Jain to Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has resigned from his post citing personal reasons and family commitment.

According to news agency PTI, VK Jain has resigned from the post of advisor to the Delhi Chief Minister citing personal reasons and family commitment. He has submitted his resignation letter in the Chief Minister's Office and sent a copy to the lieutenant governor.

Strangely, the resignation came days after he was questioned by Delhi police in a case related to the assault on the chief secretary Anshu Prakash by AAP MLAs at Kejriwal's residence. Jain had been on leave since the incident that occurred on the evening of February 19 this year.

The incident reportedly occurred in presence of Kejriwal and deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia. Prakash was called by Kejriwal regarding the issue of advertisements, which were not being released.

The two AAP legislators, Amanatullah Khan and Prakash Jarwal 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(353) and criminal conspiracy(120B) for the purported attack on Prakash.
