AAP MLA booked for tirade against govt officials
New Delhi: Aam Aadmi Party MLA from Uttam Nagar constituency Naresh Balyan has been booked by Delhi Police for his alleged speech against government officials.
A case under sections 189, 505 (1), 116, 186 and 353 of the Indian Penal Code was registered on Saturday against Balyan at Dabri police station in Dwarka, said a senior police officer.
The case was registered against the AAP MLA on a complaint from a policeman on duty during Balyan's speech at JJ Colony, Bindapur, on February 23. The complainant alleged that Balyan was making an "aggressive" speech saying that officials should be beaten up and people were giving their nod to what he was saying.
A case was registered by the police on a complaint of the chief secretary in connection with the alleged assault on him. Two AAP MLAs Amanatullah Khan and Prakash Jarwal were arrested and sent to judicial custody.
Prakash alleged that he was assaulted in a meeting at Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's residence, on the intervening night of February 19-20, by Khan and other persons. BJP leader Vijender Gupta on Sunday filed a complaint against AAP leader Dilip Kumar after the latter allegedly threatened him with assault a few days ago.
