New Delhi: BJP leader Tajinder Bagga has been “illegally detained” by Punjab police, said Delhi BJP chief Adesh Gupta.
“They didn’t allow him to even wear his turban,” he said, adding that his father has filed a complaint about the ‘manhandling’ of Tajinder Bagga.
“Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s Hitler-like act will cost him. Punjab police acting on directions of Kejriwal,” said Gupta.
Another BJP leader Kapil Mishra called party spokesperson Tajinder Pal Singh Bagga’s arrest a “misuse” of the police power.
Bagga was arrested from his residence in Delhi by the Punjab police on Friday morning, a month after he was booked for his statements against Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal for the latter’s views on the movie ‘The Kashmir Files’.
“It seems like Arvind Kejriwal has deployed Punjab’s entire police force to silence Bagga. Around 50 policemen are entering his home, that too when courts have clearly said that no such step must be taken.” Mishra said.
“The use of police in this way for a tweet, for using social media has never been done in the county’s history. It seems that instead of Punjab’s law and order, the Punjab police are being made to arrest people in Delhi,” Mishra added.
