New Delhi :Delhi Police on Monday booked AAP MLA Alka Lamba under charges of trespassing, damage to property as well as preventing public servants from discharging their duty, a day after she was hit and injured in a stone-pelting attack during her anti-drug campaign in Kashmere Gate area.

The case against Lamba was registerd at Kashmere Gate police station under Sections 451 (trespass), 427(mischief causing damage), 186 (deter public servant from official duty) on a complaint of traders, including the proprietor of a sweet shop, Shiv Mishthan Bhandar, from where the alleged stone-pelting was done, said a senior police officer.
