AAP tries filing case against V K Singh, police refuse
The Aam Aadmi Party tried to file a police complaint against the Union minister V K Singh at the Prasad Nagar police station on Friday morning for his remarks over the death of two Dalit children at Sunped in Haryana, but the Delhi Police have not registered an FIR against the former Army chief.
AAP legislators Saurabh Bhardwaj, Vishesh Ravi, Rakhi Birla, Hajarilal Chauhan and spokesperson Ashutosh visited the Prasad Nagar police station in Central Delhi on Friday in light of the ‘dog’ remark of the Union minister V K Singh.
According to sources in the police, a delegation of the Aam Aadmi Party went to the Prasad Nagar police station to file a complaint against the Union Minister under the Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities) Act, 1989. According to sources, AAP leader Ashutosh said: “We requested him to register a case, to which he said it needed the DCP’s permission.
The police official said he will first conduct an inquiry and then seek the DCP’s permission to register a case against Singh.”
According to a senior police official, they have received a complaint against V K Singh.
V K Singh triggered a huge row on Thursday when he passed a remark over the killing of two Dalit children in a village in Haryana in which he said the Centre cannot be held responsible if stones are thrown at a dog. Following which, Home Minister Rajnath cautioned V K Singh over the choice of words while expressing views over the death of two children in Faridabad.
