Interruption between Punjab and Delhi Police over Tajinder Pal Singh Bagga
Delhi police have taken the custody of BJP leader Tajinder Pal Singh Bagga, in the morning of April 6 he was arrested by Punjab Cops from his house in Janakpuri. Mr. Bagga is now being taken back to Delhi. The case of 36-year-old Bagga went under the custody of Delhi’s outer Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP) Sameer Verma. Mr. Bagga was arrested because he passed an objectionable comment over Delhi’s chief minister Arvind Kejriwal and according to sources he also tried to divide the people on the basis of caste and religion.
The news of Bagga’s arrest was provided by BJP leader Kapil Sharma by a tweet in which he tweeted that “50 cops came in the morning to arrest Tajinder Pal. He is a true Sikh and Punjab cops can’t threaten him.” After arresting Mr. Bagga, Punjab police returned to Mohali but their force was stopped by the Haryana Police in Kurukshetra and the Punjab police car was stopped for nearly 3 hours. Additionally, the Delhi Police filed a complaint on the basis of Tajinder’s father’s statement against Punjab cops. At that time Kurukshetra SP Anshu Singla, Karnal SP Ganga Ram Punia, and Ambala SP Jashandeep Singh Randhawa were present at the spot.
Sources said that a team from Punjab came to Janakpuri police station on Friday morning at 9 AM and also shared their case details with them. “The Punjab Police informed that they have served five notices under sections 41-A CRPC to him, but he was deliberately not joining the investigation. The first notice was served on April 9 and second notice was served on 11 and the third on 15, the fourth on April 22, and the fifth on April 28. After sharing all the notice, they finally sent their team to Delhi’s Janakpuri to arrest Mr. Bagga” said an officer of Punjab Police.
The complaint was filed by Punjab’s AAP spokesperson and Lok Sabha in-charge Dr. Sunny Singh Ahluwalia. This is not the first time that Mr. Bagga came into the headlines. Earlier, several cases have already been filed against him for his objectionable comments.
