New Delhi, Oct 14 (IANS) Delhi Police told the Delhi High Court on Wednesday that it won’t arrest AAP legislator Gulab Singh, who allegedly assaulted a junior engineer.

Justice Ashutosh Kumar allowed Singh’s advocate H.S. Phoolka to withdraw his anticipatory bail plea after the police submission.

Earlier, the court had granted protection to Gulab Singh from arrest till October 14.

Gulab Singh has been accused of assaulting and obstructing a public servant from discharging his duties during the demolition of an illegal building.
