New Delhi [India]: After BJP leader Tajinder Bagga was arrested by Punjab Police from his residence in the national capital early Friday (May 6) morning, Delhi Police filed a case of abduction against the move.
Meanwhile, the Punjab Police team, which was taking Bagga for questioning to Mohali, was stopped by the Haryana Police at Khanpur, Kurukshetra.
Delhi Police said that it was acting on a complaint filed by Bagga’s father, saying that some people barged inside their home and beat up the BJP leader. He also complained that Bagga wasn’t even allowed to wear a turban.
The Delhi Police has not mentioned any name in the main accused column of the FIR but mentioned the entire incident with Punjab Police in the detailed report.
The FIR has been registered under Sections 452 (Housetrespass after preparation for hurt, assault or wrongful restraint), 365 (kidnapping with intent to be secretly confined), 342 (wrongful confinement), 392 (robbery), 295 A (Deliberate and malicious acts, intended to outrage religious feelings), and 34 (Acts done by several persons in furtherance of common intention) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).
Bagga was arrested from his residence in Janakpuri over a case filed in Punjab where the Aam Aadmi Party accused the national secretary of the BJP’s youth wing of threatening Delhi’s chief minister Arvind Kejriwal.
The BJP leader was taken to the Janakpuri Police Station, outside which BJP workers gathered to stage a protest.
Delhi BJP President Adesh Gupta said that the “Hitler-like act will cost Kejriwal”. “Tajinder Bagga has been illegally detained by the Punjab Police. They didn’t allow him to even wear his turban. Complaint filed over manhandling of Tajindar Bagga by his father,” he said.
“Kejriwal’s Hitler-like act will cost him. Punjab Police acting on directions of Kejriwal,” he added.
Bagga’s father claimed that he was punched in the face while attempting to capture a video on his mobile phone of police personnel detaining his son.
Talking to ANI, he said, “This morning, 10-15 police personnel came to our home and dragged Tajinder out. When I picked up my mobile phone to record a video of the incident, police took me to another room and punched me in the face.” (ANI)
