VHP warns Delhi Police against framing their activist in false cases

Jahangirpuri

Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) spokesperson Vinod Bansal warned Delhi Police against taking actions against their activists in the Jahangirpuri Violence case.

Vishwa Hindu Parishad, a Saffron outfit, has issued a stern warning to the Delhi Police against taking strong legal actions against their workers. Vinod Bansal, the spokesperson of the VHP said that they will approach the court if their workers are dragged into the Jahangirpuri Violence case. The statement comes after the Delhi Police registered a case against the organisers for taking out Hanuman Jayanti procession without the permission in the Jahangirpur area of the National Capital. 

Usha Rangnani, the Deputy Commissioner of Police (Northwest) had confirmed that permission for two processions (Morning and Afternoon) were given by the adminstration. However, several media reports suggested that  there was no permission given for a third Shobha Yatra which was scheduled to start at night.

Reacting strongly against the action taken by the Delhi Police, Vinod Bansal, the National Spokesperson of Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) said that “We have learnt that an FIR has been registered against VHP and Bajrang Dal activists, and one of the activists has been arrested as well. They (Police) have done a big blunder.” Bansal, further rejected the claim by police and termed it ‘absurd’. He also added “Implicating VHP or its workers in false cases will tarnish the image of police itself.”

Rebutting the charges, Delhi Police Commissioner, Rakesh Asthana had on Monday said that those involved in the clashes — irrespective of their class, creed and religion — will not be spared. A total of 21 people have been arrested in connection with the clashes.

Earlier, on Saturday, nine people were injured in clashes that broke out between two communities during a Hanuman Jayanti procession in northwest Delhi’s Jahangirpuri area. According to Delhi Police, stones were pelted and few vehicles were also torched by the mob, resulting in violence.
