Sig­na­ture bridge FIRs: 2 AAP MLAs charged with as­sault

The Times of India (Mumbai edition) - - TIMES NATION -

New Delhi: Delhi Po­lice has charged Aam Aadmi Party MLAs Amanat­ul­lah Khan and San­jeev Jha with an at­tempt at cul­pa­ble homi­cide and as­sault fol­low­ing a com­plaint reg­is­tered by BJP MP Manoj Ti­wari. The po­lit­i­cal lead­ers had got into a brawl at the in­au­gu­ra­tion of Sig­na­ture Bridge last Sun­day. Sources claimed the cops have also named CM Arvind Ke­jri­wal in the case.

Fol­low­ing a counter-com­plaint by Khan, the cops lodged an­other FIR against Ti­wari for crim­i­nal in­tim­i­da­tion. A third case has been filed against AAP sup­port­ers af­ter a BJP worker com­plained of as­sault. Cops said they would ex­am­ine the com­plaint made by AAP RS mem­ber N D Gupta. Po­lice of­fi­cers said that all the com­plaints are be­ing in­di­vid­u­ally ex­am­ined on the ba­sis of merit.

“The cases have been trans­ferred to the Crime Branch for de­tailed in­ves­ti­ga­tion. It is wrong to con­strue that FIRs have been re- gis­tered against only one per­son in par­tic­u­lar,” as­serted Delhi Po­lice spokesper­son Mad­hur Verma. “We have re­ceived three com­plaints against var­i­ous peo­ple and an in-depth probe will be con­ducted into all of them.”

The Crime Branch has col­lected the videos of the in­ci­dent for anal­y­sis, af­ter which the rel­e­vant sec­tions of the law would be in­voked.
