New Delhi: Delhi BJP Pres­i­dent Manoj Ti­wari has lodged a com­plaint against Chief Min­is­ter Arvind Ke­jri­wal and AAP’S Okhla MLA Amanat­ul­lah Khan over the at­tack on him dur­ing the in­au­gu­ra­tion of Sig­na­ture Bridge on Sun­day.

Ti­wari made a writ­ten com­plaint to the Deputy Com­mis­sioner of Po­lice, North­east Delhi, on Mon­day against the two and some un­known oth­ers.

He has ac­cused Khan of push­ing and man­han­dling him dur­ing the in­au­gu­ra­tion by Ke­jri­wal in the Wazirabad area on Sun­day and de­scribed the episode as “un­for­tu­nate” as he was an in­vi­tee of the Delhi gov­ern­ment. In his com­plaint, he said: “Amanat­ul­lah Khan, un­der the in­struc­tions of Arvind Ke­jri­wal, man­han­dled and phys­i­cally as­saulted me in pres­ence of my sup­port­ers...” “...with the in­ten­tion of killing me and/or caus­ing griev­ous in­jury, he came to­wards me and pushed me sud­denly and force­fully from a cer­tain height... If some­one falls from such a place, then he will suf­fer griev­ous in­jury or die.” Some me­dia re­ports had said that Ti­wari had man­han­dled a po­lice­man, which he de­nied.

Ear­lier in the day, Aam Aadmi Party (AAP)’S Ra­jya Sabha mem­ber San­jay Singh wrote to Com­mis­sioner of Po­lice Amulya Pat­naik say­ing: “There is a video and pic­to­rial ev­i­dence of Ti­wari hav­ing held DCP North­east by his col­lar in full pub­lic view...

“Why is Delhi Po­lice silent even af­ter 48 hours of this se­ri­ous crime hav­ing been com­mit­ted against its own of­fi­cial?” he ques­tioned. He also asked whether any ac­tion had been taken against Ti­wari so far.

Singh said he will raise this is­sue in Par­lia­ment dur­ing the forth­com­ing Win­ter Ses­sion.
