Kejriwal sent Punjab Police in private car ‘to arrest me’: Delhi BJP leader

“Why are you sending Punjab Police to Delhi without informing the Delhi Police, the Uttar Pradesh police like dacoits,” Adesh Gupta asked.

These pictures were tweeted by Naveen Kumar Jindal.

Delhi BJP spokesperson Naveen Kumar Jindal on Saturday (April 9) said Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal had sent Punjab Police officers in a private car to his house “to arrest him”.

Jindal tweeted two pictures where police officers were seen standing and in the other, a car was parked on the road.

“Kejriwal has sent Punjab Police in a private car PB 02 DQ 1204 to arrest me. But I want to tell @ArvindKejriwal again today that I’m not going to be scared of him. I will keep telling the truth to the public,” he captioned the post.

Punjab Police were at Jindal’s house after a complaint was filed against him for tweeting a fake video of Kejriwal. On Friday, an FIR was lodged against Jindal in Mohali for allegedly sharing a “doctored video clip” of Kejriwal on his Twitter handle.

After Jindal’s tweet, Delhi BJP President Adesh Gupta held a press conference where he hit out at Kejriwal and his AAP party for using Punjab Police against BJP leaders.

“Why are you sending Punjab Police to Delhi without informing the Delhi Police, the Uttar Pradesh police like dacoits,” Gupta asked.

Gupta said after AAP came to power in Punjab, Kejriwal was misusing state police and termed it “cowardice”.

BJP MP Parvesh Sahib Singh, who was also present at the press conference, questioned why police came in a private car and not in an official car.

“Cops came in a private car, not in an official car. Now they are standing in front of Naveen Kumar’s residence. They will arrest him and take him to Punjab. Instead of arresting drugs mafia as they promised, Punjab Police today are keen on scoring brownie points. There is a competition among Punjab DSPs that who first get to arrest Naveen ji or (Tajinder Pal Singh) Bagga ji and get a promotion,” Singh said.

Earlier, Punjab Police had booked BJP leader Bagga for alleged criminal intimidation and making provocative statements promoting enmity between different groups.
