Millennium Post - - City - OUR COR­RE­SPON­DENT

NEW DELHI: AAP Ra­jya Sabha mem­ber ND Gupta on Fri­day filed a writ­ten com­plaint with the po­lice against BJP’S Delhi chief Manoj Ti­wari on charges of in­cit­ing vi­o­lence at the in­au­gu­ra­tion of the Sig­na­ture Bridge.

A Delhi gov­ern­ment of­fi­cial said the com­plaint was filed fol­low­ing the Delhi Po­lice’s fail­ure to reg­is­ter an FIR against Ti­wari for putting the lives of Chief Min­is­ter Arvind Ke­jri­wal and his Deputy CM Man­ish Siso­dia at risk.

“The com­plaint has been filed by Gupta as an eye­wit­ness fol­low­ing the re­fusal of Delhi Po­lice and Delhi gov­ern­ment of­fi­cers to file a po­lice com­plaint de­spite cog­niz­able of­fences hav­ing been com­mit­ted in front of them,” the of­fi­cial said.

Ahead of the in­au­gu­ra­tion of the Sig­na­ture Bridge on No­vem­ber 4, BJP and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) ac­tivists clashed, with Manoj Ti­wari at­tack­ing AAP work­ers and re­port­edly punching a po­lice­man who in­ter­vened.

The AAP al­leged that plas­tic bot­tles were hurled at the stage where Ke­jri­wal and Siso­dia were seated.

“The po­lice was duty bound to reg­is­ter an FIR against Manoj Ti­wari and his hood­lums who com­mit­ted this se­ri­ous cog­niz­able of­fence against po­lice of­fi­cers on duty ... but did not,” said Gupta in his com­plaint to the Delhi Po­lice Com­mis­sioner Amulya Pat­naik.

He re­quested the Com­mis­sioner to reg­is­ter an FIR and pro­vide a writ­ten copy.
