AAP lead­ers de­mand FIR against Delhi BJP chief Manoj Ti­wari

DNA (Delhi) - - COMMUNITY -

A del­e­ga­tion of AAP lead­ers met Delhi Po­lice Com­mis­sioner Amulya Pat­naik on Fri­day de­mand­ing regis­tra­tion of a case against the BJP’s city unit chief Manoj Ti­wari in con­nec­tion with ruckus dur­ing the in­au­gu­ra­tion of the Sig­na­ture Bridge last week.

AAP’s Ra­jya Sabha mem­ber N D Gupta pro­vided an eye­wit­ness ac­count of the in­ci­dent in a com­plaint let­ter, al­leg­ing that Ti­wari and his sup­port­ers en­tered the Sig­na­ture Bridge as part of a “pre­planned con­spir­acy” with the in­ten­tion of “com­mit­ting vi­o­lence and as­sault­ing” Chief Min­is­ter Arvind Ke­jri­wal and his coun­cil of min­is­ters.

The Delhi Po­lice has reg­is­tered three FIRs in con­nec­tion with the in­ci­dent, in­clud­ing one against AAP MLA Amanat­ul­lah Khan who was ac­cused of push­ing Ti­wari and threat­en­ing him at the event. One case each has been reg­is­tered on com­plaints of BJP and AAP work­ers. Al­leg­ing po­lice “in­ac­tion”, Gupta said he and an­other party MP, Sushil Gupta, wit­nessed the in­ci­dent and were ready to record their state­ments.

“In my view, the po­lice is duty-bound to reg­is­ter an FIR against Ti­wari and other hood­lums who com­mit­ted a se­ri­ous cog­niz­able of­fence by ob­struct­ing pub­lic ser­vants on duty and as­sault­ing them,” Gupta said.
