Delhi's Tis Hazari Court on Wednesday sent the accused, in the chilli powder attack case on Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, to 14-day judicial custody, news agency ANI reported.
The accused Anil Kumar Sharma, a resident of Delhi's Narayana, hid the chilli powder in a cigarette packet while he was waiting in the visitor's area, reports added.
Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia on Wednesday alleged that the BJP leadership had knowledge of the attack on Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and the opposition party wants the latter eliminated to stop him from working for the people.
"(Union) Home Minister Rajnath Singh called Kejriwal and asked him to file a complaint in the attack on him. Is this the way an attack on a chief minister should be probed?" Sisodia asked at a press conference.
Kejriwal's reaction comes a day after a man threw red pepper powder at him inside the Delhi Secretariat on Tuesday.
