Shoe hurled at Kejriwal: Accused remanded to judicial custody
April 10, 2016  18:37
A court today remanded Ved Prakash, who hurled a shoe at Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal at a press conference yesterday, to one-day judicial custody.  

Prakash, 28, a national general secretary of Aam Aadmi Sena, was produced before a duty metropolitan magistrate and was sent to judicial custody after the police said he was not required for custodial interrogation. The shoe had not hit Kejriwal as it was quickly deflected by an official standing near the chief minister who, later, continued with the press conference. 

Prakash, who was arrested yesterday, had first interrupted Kejriwal when he was briefing reporters at the media centre of the Delhi Secretariat about the rollout of the second phase of odd-even scheme and had thereafter thrown a shoe and a CD at the chief minister. 

He had claimed that he was angry with Kejriwal for not taking action against those involved in alleged irregularities in distribution of CNG stickers.
