BJP leader Tajinder Pal Singh Bagga has been taken to a police station in Haryana after the Punjab Police cavalcade was intercepted, Indian Express reported.
Haryana police officer told the The Indian Express, “We have brought Bagga and the Punjab police team to the Thanesar police Station (Kurukshetra). We have questioned the Punjab policemen.” A team of Delhi Police has also reached the police station.
The Senior Superintendent of Police, SAS Nagar Mohali, has sent a letter to his counterpart in Kurukshetra, requesting the release of the Punjab Police team and the accused so that he may be presented before the court “in time as per law”.
He added that the team being stopped in Haryana “tantamounts to illegal detention and interference in administration of criminal justice system”.
The Delhi Police has filed an FIR against the Punjab Police for “abduction” and “assault”, the report added.
Bagga was picked up by the Punjab Police Friday morning from his residence in West Delhi in connection with an inflammatory statements case.
Bagga’s mother while speaking to The Indian Express alleged that the police didn’t allow her son to tie his siropa before the arrest and assaulted his father while he was trying to take a video of the incident.
She also hit out at Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal for “daadagiri”.
