    NEW DELHI: Tajinder Pal Singh Bagga, BJP spokesperson arrested by Punjab Police from his residence in Delhi’s Janakpuri Area, a month after he was booked for his statements against Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal over the latter’s views on the movie “The Kashmir Files”. Before arresting him, the Punjab Police had intimated the Janakpuri police station.

    Sources said a police team from Punjab came to Janakpuri police station on Friday morning and shared their case details with them.

    Officer said that – “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, the second on April 11, the third on April 15, the fourth on April 22, and the fifth on April 28. After sharing the details, they sent their team to his house where he was picked up and taken to the Janakpuri police station. They are now completing legal documentation work after making his arrest,”

    The mother of the arrested person said – “The Punjab police arrived early morning and picked him (Bagga) up from our home. Tejinder was sleeping and was not even allowed to wear his slipper and tie his siropa. It is a huge crime (gunaah) to take a Sikh man away like this without letting him tie his siropa. When my husband tried to record the incident, they snatched his phone and assaulted him. He was punched in the face. He called me at around 7 am from his other phone and told me about the incident,”

    Currently, her mother is in Bihar. When contacted, Ropar range Deputy Inspector General of Police Gurpreet Singh Bhullar and Mohali’s Senior Superintendent of Police Vivek Sheel Soni was not available for the comments.

    Reacting to the arrest, BJP leader Kapil Mishra tweeted: “Tejinder Bagga has been arrested by 50 police personnel of Punjab police. He is a true Sikh and they cannot threaten him.”

    Bagga had been charged by Punjab Police under Sections 153-A (promoting enmity between different groups on grounds of religion, race, place of birth, residence, language, etc., and doing acts prejudicial to maintenance of harmony); 505 (Statements conducing to public mischief); 505 (2) (Statements creating or promoting enmity, hatred or ill will between classes); and 506 (Punishment for criminal intimidation) of the IPC, on April 1, 2022. The complaint refers to a statement made by Bagga which it is alleged constitutes instigation/incitement to cause violence, use of force, and imminent hurt to Arvind Kejriwal and other leaders, and members of the Aam Aadmi Party in a pre-designed, well planned, orchestrated manner.
