Jain has resigned citing "personal reasons", a source said.

Jain was appointed Kejriwal's adviser in September 2017.

Last month, Chief Secretary Anshu Prakash had alleged that he was beaten up by two AAP MLAs in the presence of Kejriwal at the Chief Minister's residence on February 19, where he had been called for an emergency meeting.

According to the Chief Secretary, the Jain had called him over the phone and asked him to come to the Chief Minister's residence for the meeting and Jain was also present there.

Mr. Jain told The Hindu on Tuesday that he had resigned citing personal reasons and family commitments.

Local gas prices down another 4 cents, for now
But GasBuddy surveys indicate local prices at the pump are still up 21.1 cents per gallon compared with the same time a year ago. Crude oil prices, which drive gasoline prices, jumped at the end of last week, right along with the stock market.

Jain, however, had initially said he had not seen anything as he was in the washroom when the incident is alleged to have taken place.

Jain had not been coming to the chief minister's office since the incident and had gone on a week-long medical leave, the sources said. The board is chaired by Kejriwal.

In solidarity with Prakash, IAS officers as well as Civil Services officers of Delhi and Andaman and Nicobar Islands have not been attending meetings with AAP ministers, and only maintaining written communication with them. He pointed out that despite repeated appeals by his party leaders, including Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal, the Union government had not brought in an ordinance or a Bill to stop the sealing to provide relief to the traders.

They have also been observing a five-minute silence at work every day.

One of the witnesses in the assault case of Chief Secretary Anshu Prakash, Jain changed his statement on the events of the night while being questioned later on.
