The Notices dated 09/04/2022, 11/04/2022 and 15/04/2022, 22.04.2022 and 28.04.2022 were duly served upon. In spite of that, the accused deliberately did not join the investigation.”
Tajinder Bagga will be produced in court. Further investigation is on, the police said.
The Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM) national secretary was booked last month after AAP leader Sunny Singh filed a complaint against him alleging that Tajinder Pal Singh had made provocative statements, spread rumours, and tried to create religious and communal enmity. Bagga allegedly threatened Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal during a protest on March 30. The complainant also submitted statements and video clips of Bagga to the police.
The BJP condemned the arrest. “It is extremely shameful that Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has started abusing his party’s political power in Punjab. Every citizen of Delhi stands with the family of Tajindar Pal Singh Bagga in this hour of crisis,. Said spokesperson of Delhi BJP Praveen Shankar Kapoor.
